Yes Futures started in 2011 with the aim of empowering young people to develop confidence, resilience and key life skills through challenging extra-curricular development programmes. Pupils from the hard-working middle of the spectrum who, in disadvantaged schools, are often lost between initiatives to help both the most gifted and the most troubled, but still face huge barriers to success and aspiration are specifically targeted to take part. The Fore funded the salary of the Programmes Officer over a 12 month period to push the organisation beyond the pilot phase.
