We did it
On 20th September 2019 we successfully raised £2,000 with 32 supporters in 41 days

Our aim is to create a bigger space to facilitate more sessions; a dance studio, media centre, counselling room and kitchen facilities.

New stretch target

This will enable us to put on more activities such as a camp trip, as many of the girls we work with come from low income families and this will enable them the opportunity to get out of London and enjoy the countryside. 

We also want to train volunteers and run a Big Sister, Little Sister mentoring scheme. Mentors are needed in today's society but we want to ensure we have the right people and resources to enable them to make a positive impact into the life of the girls we work with.


Is to empower and motivate young women aged 12-21 years old; by means of promoting and encouraging individuality; through challenging the limitations of their mind-sets, in order to reach their full potential in life.

The culture of today's society is vastly changing, and with this comes many challenging issues for girls and young millennial women. With the pressures of social media, higher educational fees, and unemployment, our young women are being socially and economically squeezed. We believe the old motto of "give someone a fish, and you feed them for the day; show them how to catch fish, and you feed them for a lifetime." YGT aims to help young women create the tools they need to deal with the challenges life brings and to help them onto the path of success.


So far we have worked with over 100 girls in and around London, running workshops covering issues around self-esteem and confidence, money management, black british history, healthy eating, dance,music sports and more. We have created a safe space to enable young women to express themselves, deal with difficult issues and build budding friendships. We have achieved many positive outcomes as a result of the work we do; such as improved school attendance and behaviour, less anti-social behaviour within the community, due to there being a space whereby girls can attend our sessions, which has given them something constructive to do, alongside helping them engage in their community in  positives way. 


"Since coming to YGT i have become more confident about myself and have made lots of friends." 

"YGT has helped me to learn so much and I was able to save my pocket money when i did the money management workshop."

"As a parent I have seen the difference in my daughter, she has really come out of her shell and even her teachers at school have noticed this."

"This project is a needed space for BAME girls, especially in an area such as Croydon, which is very diverse. The workshops they run help young women to talk about matters that they may not get to at home and school."

Our mantra is all about helping girls to THRIVE,GROW & INSPIRE!!!


The money raised will be used to create a better space to open up our services to more girls and run more activities.

With the space our vision is to create;

● Computer Suite

This will enable us to run employability and training session. Alongside graphic, web design, coding workshops.

● Media Centre

Where girls can learn how to run a podcast, present, edit and photography.

● Dance Studio

To promote health and wellbeing through dance and fitness, such as yoga and step classes. We also aim to open this up to the community to access classes.

● Office / Counselling Room

This will be a space where staff can work with the girls on a 1:1 basis, alongside offering coaching or counselling sessions by professionals.

Help us today to make all of this possible.

On behalf of the YGT team and girls we want to say a big THANK YOU for all the support along our journey and all the new supporters!
