Well, what an incredible year it’s been. As we approach Christmas and the end of 2023 I want to take a moment to reflect on our achievements over the last 12 months.
This year our programmes have supported over 615 students! Empowering each of them to believe in themselves and achieve their potential. These students have received over 2,460 personalised coaching sessions, delivered by this amazing and committed community of 220 coaches!
In addition to one-to-one coaching sessions, with the support of these Coaches and Trip Day Volunteers, we've run an amazing 64 immersive trip days for students. Allowing each student to step away from the classroom and Into The Wild for outdoor adventures! And then into the World of Work to consider their future career aspirations and opportunities.
The Yes Futures team would like a say a huge THANK YOU for everyone's support over the last 12 months. And some other, rather important people, would also like to say to little something, check out the video below...

We want to welcome many more Coaches onto our programmes and community and we will seek out new and exciting partnerships to grow our support to young people, providing them with the new opportunities and experiences that they deserve.
We're also really excited to be celebrating our 10th anniversary, keep an eye out for more details coming soon!
