Making a Difference

May 26th, 2011

Envision

Since the start of the academic year, 5 young people from Central Foundation have joined thousands across the UK making a difference in their schools and communities. Through the Envision programme the students have planned and implemented social and environmental projects. The team have spent this year creating The Stereo Type Fighters t-shirt campaign which aims to challenge the way young people are perceived within our society.

The group were also involved in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style event Pitch4Change. With mentoring from McDermot Will and Emory Law firm employees they created a 5 minute presentation and successfully receiving £500 to develop their project.

The team used this money to create flyers, posters and social marketing sites to advertise their t-shirts and develop their marketing skills. Their products will soon be on sale with 30% of their profits are being donated to a local community organisation.

This year the students have fully embraced the Envision ideology of youth- leadership. They have each taken a lot from the programme, developing vital skills in teamwork and and public speaking. The team will have a chance to celebrate their achievements at the Envision Summer Ceremony on 7th July at Shoreditch Town Hall.

Central Foundation is pleased with the accomplishments of the group and their position as role models of the school. We hope this encourages students to take part in the programme next year.
