NTMY’s Life Lab supports young people by engaging them with a number of both academic and extracurricular activities. These help in developing the skills, confidence and sense of belonging necessary in such a difficult phase of their life. We have an ultimate goal of reducing behavioural issues, educational disengagement and school exclusions. As part of Life Lab, students can take part in art workshops, gardening, dance, boxing, crafting and a range of other sport and educational after school programmes.
More than 15 desks over 2 floors and communal meeting rooms, the space is open to all. From entrepreneurs and small businesses who need a place to grow, to schools or educators looking for a safe, high quality space to organise events that support positive development, everyone is welcome!
NTMY’s support will help to provide young Londoners from disadvantaged and minority ethnic backgrounds with new skills and networks and work to improve their access into work or introduce them to different career options at a point in their life when they are making crucial decisions about their future.
Our contributions have funded full school fees for a number of talented students. Additionally, NTMY’s members are providing mentoring sessions to Tuendelee beneficiaries and and we are currently exploring the possibility of staring an internship programme.
NTMY donations have enabled a number of young people to join the various RYH supported programmes, improving both their academic engagement as well as their interpersonal skills.
