NEW YEAR, NEW TEAM!

We’re delighted to introduce to you the newest team member of the Award and Development Programme, Louise!

  

Louise joins us from The Diana Award’s Anti-Bullying Programme, where she helped to support young people undertake their anti-bullying campaigns in school and in their communities.

Both Saraniya and Louise are excited to continue to support you in your personal and professional development, campaigns and social action projects. We’d love to hear what projects you’re working on and what you’ve got planned for 2021!

LET US KNOW

JOIN OUR NEXT WEBINAR: LIFE IS JUST A JOURNEY_

We are excited to invite you to our next webinar: Life is Just a Journey with John Walsh.

John Walsh's journey to becoming a best-selling author, keynote speaker and entrepreneur is an inspirational example that no two paths are the same. As a teen, John was homeless in high school and as a young adult, he spent years trying to figure out his purpose and what he wanted to do in life. His journey became a series of events that led him to graduate from college with honours and become a senior executive with The Walt Disney Company and The Madison Square Garden Company.

We hope you can join us on Monday 15th February at 4:30pm GMT.
