OUR VISION

We’ve collaborated to establish a new six month programme for black and black mixed race 16-18 year-olds of all genders who are deserving of a second chance and/or boost of confidence.
This will include a series of inspirational workshops, mentoring sessions and networking opportunities with the intention of equipping each participant with the soft skills needed for a successful life and career.
This project was inspired by our CEO, Amani Simpson‘s personal lived experience of getting a second chance at age 16 from a mentor who helped him build confidence and find a positive pathway.

AMANI also means ‘Peace’ in Swahili and ‘Aspirations’ in Arabic which is exactly what we want to empower within the lives of our participants. Many have faced systemic pressures and subsequently made ill-informed decisions, but they’re all deserving of a lifeline! This project is about uplifting the youths that society too often labels as unreachable and helping to install a foundation of self-awareness, hope and confidence before introducing them to other opportunities and support networks. Someone did it for me when I was 16 so I’m paying it forward to the next generation!
