Partnership is an essential element of the Eastside philosophy. Our team serves as a linchpin connecting the different interests of those who contribute to our ongoing success in developing the character and educational potential of the young people we work with, as well as supporting their families.
Understandably, schools are of primary importance in this context. Our roots are in the London borough of Newham; over the years we have expanded our reach to develop relationships with schools in the boroughs of Waltham Forest, Haringey, and Hackney.
In particular, we value the relationships we have developed and maintain with our partners. Those currently engaged in our work include:
The Springboard Bursary Foundation
Bank of America Merrill Lynch
We are especially proud of the fraternal relationships with the other Young Leaders Academies that have grown to serve other localities in London and elsewhere. Whilst they are established as independent entities, we ensure that links remain strong through the organisation of joint events to celebrate successes and share learning. So far the 'extended family' includes:
Milton Keynes YLA
