The Grassroot Activators Programme (GAP)

💫 Do you believe young people have all the talent, but in many communities limited opportunities?

💫 Do you know a 16-25-year-old with a spark that needs support to be lit?

The Grassroot Activators Programme (GAP) is a year-long initiative delivered over 2 days a week.

GAP seeks to raise aspirations, create role models and develop realistic pathways to future opportunities.

Each young person will have a dedicated youth and business mentor who will help you with realising your passion whether it’s based on a job, college, education, or experience.

GAP will not change the world, but it will transform some young people’s lives.

GAP is based on consultation with young people and communities of Bristol, a year’s research through a fellowship at Bristol Universities – School of Education. In short – there is nothing like this 💫

GAP is accessible to young people of all backgrounds and abilities💫

GAP will be full of fun, learning, experiences and connections that will transform your life 💫
