Support South London boys in achieving their academic potential
Southside Young Leaders’ Academy is a youth leadership charity based in South London that aims to develop boys, aged 8 - 16, of African and Afro- Caribbean heritage. They work with boys from deprived areas and aim to reduce their risk of social exclusion. To do this, the charity provides an engaging programme of activities that motivate boys to become productive members of their community and well-respected young men. Since 2007, the charity has helped over 200 boys through personal development, teamwork and skills training. Although not a school, the same foundation of tutoring to help these children reach their academic potential still applies. Team Up tutors will be helping these boys to appreciate the importance of education and open their eyes to the future opportunities available to them.
