  • Stage Two - Exceed Expectations

  • Stage Three - Youth Impact.

  • + Follow on Opportunities

Once young people have completed the programme, they are supported to continue their growth through bespoke opportunities, work experience or volunteering.

Alongside KEY+, we have a range of flexible volunteering opportunities including...
