We work tirelessly with young people across the UK to raise aspirations, self confidence and inspire them to reach their potential. The Inspiration Federation collaborates with schools, youth clubs and other youth, arts and health and well-being organisations, coordinating meaningful projects and programmes that ensure young people from all backgrounds and walks of life benefit from our work.
We work closely with the education sector; One of the programmes we organise and co-ordinate on a continual basis is the ‘Heroes Day Programme’ in schools across the UK. One of our core beliefs is that too many young people idolise, and are influenced by, celebrities and people from reality TV programmes. (It is important to note that some celebrities do, and indeed have done inspirational things!).
The ‘Heroes Day Programme’ recognises and champions the inspirational people in our communities. It is our aim to teach young people the key differences between celebrity and heroism, promoting the importance of hard work, determination, grit and resilience. The Programme provides an opportunity for young people to learn about the truly inspirational people of the past and also the anonymous inspirational people of the present, within our local communities.
In today’s society, it is also important that young people learn about the values and diversity that makes Great Britain great!
