Mission, Vision & ValuesWhat we stand for

Our mission is to develop the skills, confidence and outlook of young people from poorer backgrounds so that they can succeed in their chosen career.
Our vision is to give young people from poorer backgrounds the same opportunities to succeed in their career as those from wealthier families. Helping young people to have the right aspirations, skills, attitudes and behaviour to succeed is the only way we will ever improve social mobility. We want to see these key factors, which determine career success, in the school curriculum. For those who have left school, we believe ‘skills hubs’ in communities that are subject to high levels of deprivation would provide a route to a better life for those young people who have been let down by the education system.
These core values represent our guiding principles as representatives of Making The Leap:
