Across the UK, thousands of young people grow up in disadvantage. Many young people are prevented from thriving in education and employment, stopping them from reaching their full potential in later life. For many of these young people, the global pandemic has had a devasting impact. We believe that EVERY young person – no matter their background - should have the opportunity to develop the skills and experience they need to reach their full potential.
We are asking for your donations to our Re:Green Access Fund, which will directly support 30 disadvantaged young people to join the Raleigh International Re:Green programme. The Re:Green Access Fund opens the door for disadvantaged young people to engage in climate initiatives by providing a fully-funded opportunity to join Re:Green. Following their placement, the young people will join our youth-led movement 'Action Not Excuses'.
I was doing nothing at home. I wanted to contribute towards a more sustainable future. I had never been anywhere else. I had always been in a box. I knew a Raleigh programme would force me to do things and learn new skills.
It’s been an opportunity to grow as a person in ways that you wouldn’t think possible... Without the Access Fund, I wouldn’t have been able to get involved with Raleigh as I don’t have the means to pay for it... it is something I’m very grateful for.
