This week Partner, Alison Reid and Managing Director, Aubrey Calderwood got a chance to meet some of the students at the Aspire Academy NI programme.
Sponsored by our Belfast office, the Academy offers a place for young people to work in a supervised and supportive environment after school. This year’s programme covers music, art, wellbeing and a football boot camp. Each session is led by a facilitator who encourages the pupils and provides them with support.
Alison said: “I’m very excited about our partnership with Aspire NI. This is just the start of our journey in Northern Ireland to help close the educational attainment gap for children living in poverty that sadly exists between rich and poor.”
