Envision was set up by four young people in 2000 to challenge the stereotype of ‘youth’ as apathetic and disengaged with the issues going on around them. Today Envision’s flagship programme supports 16-19 year olds from over 130 schools and colleges in Birmingham, Leeds and London. We also operate satellite schools in Cardiff, Essex, Oxford and Walsall. Last academic year we worked with over 4000 young people across the country across all of our programmes.
Envision programmes help young people to design their own local community projects tackling issues ranging from street crime to climate change. Our programmes seek to provide individuals with a powerful and rewarding experience of making a positive difference. Thereby inspired by their experience, these people will be both willing and able to continue acting as effective role models for their communities wherever they are building powerful legacies of their own.
