We identified Youth Week 2021 as a key chance to work with our partners and local communities to help address disenfranchisement among 12-to-18-year-olds as part of our Community Resilience Action Plan.
As part of Youth Week, we hosted 8 days of Future You events at Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City including sports and wellbeing sessions, creative arts programmes, and education and career goal workshops.
"We were so fortunate to connect with several young people who really opened up and allowed their creativity to shine. Thanks to you and the team for organising it all - I know it was no small feat and we look forward to participating again next year!"
- Jessica Ortiz, Partnerships & Fundraising Manager, Young Urban Arts Foundation
"I just wanted to send you a little email to say thanks for all the opportunities and support you have provided me with the Future You event! It’s been amazing to work for such a big brand and it’s been so beneficial to my career development. I’d love to stay in touch and get involved in any future community commissions or events should any relevant opportunities arise!"
