About this cause
Envision supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop their social confidence, personal efficacy and other skills needed to lead successful lives. We do this by empowering them to tackle real-life social problems in their communities while gaining valuable exposure to the world of work. Working in partnerships with schools, we deliver proven approaches to developing character and employability in young people. We specialise in using social action as a vehicle for development, which means that as well as preparing young people for work, we are also developing a generation of change makers willing and able to build a better society for all of us.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The Community-Apprentice programme is delivered across Birmingham,Bristol and London. Each school is in a cluster of 5 schools and competes with 4 others in inter-school challenges. Within this cluster, school teams work together to raise funds and awareness for local charities and tackle issues in the community.
