Are you aged 16-18, live in Southwark (London), and want to take action on the next steps in your life?

Then the HeadStart Action programme is here for you!

2-3 Degrees, want to invite you to a series of free workshops taking place over 10 weeks. 


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.
