We are a not-for-profit called Say It With Your Chest. Our vision is to create a world where young people are supported to thrive, realise their potential and build a better future for themselves.We have three aims that are at the core of the organisation:- reduce the rate of exclusions in schools by decreasing persistent disruptive behaviour.- empower young people to raise their aspirations and break their negative behaviour cycles- inform and influence public and policy awarenessOUR WHYWe work with students who are at the highest risk of being excluded because there are many negative outcomes that can happen as a result of being excluded from school. For example:- Being excluded from school is a factor that will increase a young person’s risk of child criminal exploitation (National Crime Agency, 2018).- Not engaging with school and being excluded are very strong indicators for those who are at risk of involvement in youth violence (Youth Safety Taskforce, 2018).- An excluded student is four times more likely to be jailed as an adult (The University of Edinburgh, 2016).- School exclusions make already vulnerable young people more vulnerable, as being excluded leads to a reduction in the number of hours that a student spends in a supervised environment (All-Party Parliamentary Groups, 2019).WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FORWe would like the volunteer to help with :- Researching trusts and foundations that are aligned to our vision and mission- Identifying grants that we can apply for- Writing and developing grant applications- Effectively communicating our mission and programmes to potential funders- Tracking and creating a calendar of grant deadlines and proposals submitted
