The ONE project for Young People

THE ONE  project aims to engage, support and connect Young People in Ealing and Hillingdon with local Social Action activities or inspire them to deliver their own initiatives.  The short pre-course builds confidence amongst Young People and equips them with all the necessary skills to ensure their Social Action activities are positive, productive and create impact in the local community.   The pre course also provides an opportunity to explore each Young People’s dreams, passions and motivations which inspire them to carry out Social Action. The Young People can then decide which type of activity they wish to carry out, either connecting to a local initiative or delivering their own.
