Today's fast-paced world presents young people with a plethora of opportunities, challenges and risks. How can we work together to empower them to take charge of their lives and become positive forces for change in our constantly transforming society?

Join us to discuss and debate upcoming challenges and solutions with our panel of speakers and other like-minded individuals from the education and charity sectors.

Our confirmed speakers for the event are:

Jason Heaford, Chief Operating Officer at The Tutor Trust

The Tutor Trust is a Manchester-based charity working to transform the achievements and life chances of disadvantaged young people in schools in challenging communities.

The Tutor Trust serves disadvantaged pupils by supplying schools with first class academic tutors from university and professional backgrounds. Pupils receive small group or one-to-one tuition to support them with Maths, English and Science. It is Britain’s only professional, not-for-profit tuition service for state schools in challenging communities.

Jason will be speaking about young people’s rights with a focus on every child’s right to a good education.

Rachel Crabtree, Community Fundraising Officer at The Albert Kennedy Trust

The Albert Kennedy Trust is a voluntary organisation based in Greater Manchester, founded in 1989 to serve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) young people who are homeless, living in a hostile environment or in housing crisis. The AKT aims to prevent LGBT youth homelessness because no young person should have to choose between a safe home and being who they are.

Rachel will be explaining how we can listen to young people, even when they’re not talking. She will also share some case-studies of when young people have been empowered through their work with the Albert Kennedy Trust.
