Who We Are
Who we are
We are a Social Enterprise working across Liverpool and West Yorkshire, providing full time, Alternative Education and Employability programmes for young people between the ages of 11 and 29.
We were established in 2012, and in that time have empowered 1000’s of young people to take responsibility for their own development and unleash their potential.
“We want to inspire a generation of happy, healthy, employable young people with equal access to opportunities in education as well as at home, work, in their community and in life”.
What we do
We transform young lives and build resilient communities through unique education and employability programmes that are individually developed to meet the needs of each and every student we care for.
We do this by offering accredited training, personal guidance, support and access to a wider curriculum of enrichment activities as well as robust safeguarding measures to ensure we have a generation of happy, healthy, resilient young people.
In the last few years, and in partnership with other local entrepreneurs we have successfully launched vibrant, sustainable enterprise hubs managed by our students for the benefit of our community. See ‘Projects’ for more information.
Why we do it
We are fiercely passionate about what we do and committed to creating safer, vibrant communities and pathways out of poverty.
We love and care for the young people of our community, and feel it’s our duty to nurture and support them when they face significant barriers to learning and work.
Many of our students have gone on to apprenticeships, employment and even university after accessing an education that was the right ‘fit’ for them.
Every penny of our profits is reinvested in the interest of improving our student’s health and wellbeing. We provide our students with healthy nutritious meals, travel costs, enrichment activities and PHSE support. Throughout it all we strive to enrich our community with the services and skills our students learn along the way. We generate local jobs for local people.
