Reintroducing tenacious black and marginalised youth to our new world through mentoring tools and techniques

About Us

We are an inclusive black-led youth organisation, that through the use of mentoring tools and techniques, enables and equips young people from black and marginalised communities, in overcoming barriers to their progression and widening their access to opportunities.
Our main aim is to improve equity, social capital, and the social mobility of the young people we serve, with the ultimate mission to end the circle of poverty.


Being safely guided by a trusted person with a set of qualities and more experience in a particular area, via the use of mentoring tools and techniques, to support another with less experience in the progression and achievement of chosen goals and targets.
