Objectives

ThinkForward is a charity that works to empower young people in the UK through long-term coaching. We equip young people with the skills and experience they need to move into work or further education after they finish school.

Everything we do is centred around giving young people the autonomy and confidence they need to be successful so that they have control over their own lives and futures. Our coaches are embedded in schools and provide one-to-one and group coaching to the young people on our programmes.

Young people develop the skills they need, learn to overcome the barriers that keep them from being successful in school and in later life, and take part in employability activities to broaden their horizons and provide experience of the workplace.

Activities

Our FutureMe programme works with young people who face challenges on their path to success to get them ready for the world of work. Our coaches are based in schools in London, Nottingham and Kent.

The DFN-MoveForward programme works in London, Kent and the West Midlands with young people who have mild to moderate learning disabilities with the aim of supporting them into sustainable paid employment.

Our Future Leaders programme works with black male students in Alternative Provision schools in London for two years, from the age of 16 to support them into employment.
