Young Philosophers – Community Investment
The Social Need
Many young people lack the contacts, confidence and sense of belonging to institutions and activities. Our Young Philosophers Programme critically engages young people in social and business environments that they may otherwise feel excluded from, with the aim of raising aspirations, developing confidence, teaching new skills and raising social engagement.
The programme for 2015-16 was made possible through the generous support of The Draper's Company. The Co-op Local Community Fund helped us raise enough funds to keep the programme going from 2016 into 2017. And with funds from the RELX group we will be able to run our third year of events in 2018.
