Christian youth charity celebrates 10 years with gala

THESE DAYS, if you’ve managed to stick at anything for more than a year it’s a reason to celebrate.

If like us, you are a small London-based charity working with inner city young people; then you are so thankful for having reached 10 years, in a climate where hundreds of charities are closing every year due to funding shortages.

We are The Hebe Foundation – a Christian youth charity working with mainly disadvantaged young people from all ethnic heritages. We help young people across London to discover and use their gifts and talents, whilst building character.

We started in 2007 in response to the gang and gun crime issues in London and felt a need to produce impactful youth work. Since then we have worked with over 1200 young people giving them vital skills to succeed.

Our bespoke projects include a business and leadership project called The Junior Apprentice, as well as the Urban Debaters project - an effective communication project, as well as a photography project about being a role model, work experience placements and ongoing mentoring to name a few initiatives.

We have an excellent pass rate of young people on all our projects, and the need for our work is growing and more demanding with every day. None of this would have been possible without our amazing 500+ volunteers and 50+ corporate relationships.

This 10-year journey hasn’t been easy –the struggle is very real, but oh so worth it when we see our young people develop before our eyes.

So, you see there are so many reasons to celebrate – about 1200 of them! We will be doing this on 9 June 2017 with a black tie event, because every young person is worth it!
