What We Do

Our Mission

To enable BME children and young people, to do well at school and go on to become transformational leaders and global citizens

EYLA exists to nurture and develop the leadership potential of (mainly) African and Caribbean young people,
empowering them to become the next generation of successful leaders.

Many paths in life are determined by the influence and inspiration of the learning environment. EYLA is such a place.
We have created a zone of magical realism, channelling energy and ambition into productive pursuits unlocking the true potential in each child.

We work with our partners and parents to motivate and encourage students to go beyond their personal best. We run weekly workshops and seminars utilising our own unique, bespoke leadership curriculum, built on seven core competencies:

• Confidence & Capacity • Participation Identity History & Family
Self-expression & Leadership Self-management Service
