The HeadStart Action programme is being delivered in Southwark by 2-3 Degrees, a youth led personal development company that aims to inspire and empower young minds, whilst bridging the gap between education and employment through volunteering.
The programme provides bespoke support to young people to engage in education or employment. Participants will deliver a social action project that will help them to gain confidence, develop employability skills and remain engaged in education or employment.
The HeadStart Action programme, is supported by the Mayor of London and was developed by The Challenge, in partnership with Team London. Following the success of the HeadStart Action pilots delivered by The Challenge, London Youth has been fortunate to secure the programme for another year of delivery.

Young people aged 16-18 who are currently not working, in training or education but are keen to upskill themselves and interested in enhancing their employability and confidence whilst having fun!
