Details of Organisation:
At VOYAGE we believe in engaging young people from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds in conversation and activities oriented around improving their quality of life as opposed to blanketed traditional teaching techniques, which may not be as effective in terms of discovery and generating solutions.
Based in Hackney Community College, Shoreditch Campus, VOYAGE is an educational and criminal justice charity and social enterprise set up to develop and transform the aspirations of our young black communities.
VOYAGE works with the hard to reach and hard to engage communities encouraging young people to develop themselves and their communities and promote a culture of respect, equality and justice.
