Envision was set up by four young people in 2000 to challenge the stereotype of ‘the youth’ as apathetic and disengaged with the issues going on around them.
Today Envision’s programmes support 16-19 year olds from over 120 schools and colleges in Birmingham, Bristol and London. In the next academic year they will work with over 2,000 young people across all of their programmes.
Envision programmes support young people to design and deliver their own community projects tackling issues they feel passionately about - from street crime to climate change. The programmes provide individuals with a powerful and rewarding experience of making a positive difference. Inspired by their experience and equipped with new skills, these young people will be both willing and able to continue acting as effective role models for their communities - building powerful legacies of their own. Envision utilises mentors from business to support young people to reflect on the skills they develop through Envision, and understanding how they relate to the world of work.
