Upgrade Yourself Celebration Event

An event celebrating the achievement of young people in the Upgrade Yourself Programme.


“Upgrade Yourself” is a learning, education and employment programme that supports young people, aged 10 to 25, with academic achievement and professional and personal development.Young Leaders and Upgrade Yourself members Scarlett and Sankofa thought it would be a great idea to hold a celebration event for the young people at the end of the year, celebrating academic and personal development success where we would like to give out certificates and awards for different categories.


40 young people attended the event with food, games, some guest speakers as well as performances from local young talented artists.

Future Developments

The event was also used as an opportunity to invite other local young people in order to promote the UY programme as well as other Coin Street/local opportunities.
