The West London Summer Programme is brought to you by Future Foundations, an award winning youth training organisation in partnership with Ark Schools and the Aldridge Foundation.
Our aim is to provide inspiring, developmental and fun experiences for young people in West London.
Our programmes are fully funded and benefit from the support of incredible partners. We would like to thank the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea for their support.
Our main London venue will be Burlington Danes Academy, we also run trips offsite to Charterhouse School and a range of other inspiring venues.
Alongside our programme of activities there will be therapeutic support on offer which will be accessible for young people and their families.
WHY RUN A SUMMER PROGRAMME?
Educational research shows that all children lose some of the learning and confidence they achieved during the school year during the summer holidays.
The aim of our programmes are to reverse this by offering students the opportunity to take part in a wide range of enrichment opportunities designed and delivered by professional youth coaches, and supported by our partner school teachers.
This year, as part of the response to the Grenfell Tower fire, we also want to make sure that there are as many enrichment opportunities available for local young people as possible.
OUR PROGRAMME PARTNERS
Without our partners we could not make our programmes happen. We would like to thank our partners who have provided volunteers, staff, space, programmes, residential facilities and funding.
