ABOUT US

Your Future, Your Ambition was founded by Rashada Harry and Tunji Akintokun. In 2012, they along with 14 organisations came together with the aspiration of inspiring young people (ages 7 to 23 yrs) from diverse backgrounds into pursuing STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) based careers and the Your Future, Your Ambition (YFYA) event was launched.

Now in it’s 6th year the event provides younger age groups (7-16) with exciting and inspiring activities, whilst providing the older age groups (17+ yrs) with access to blue chip organisations through key workshops and exposure designed to provide the key tools top companies are looking for in respect to STEM based careers.

Each year the event aims to attract more companies in order to connect with more schools and students. This will create a stronger and more binding link between education and industry.

In 2017, the event will take place at the Emirates Stadium, London on the 5th October, where the aim is to have over 20 organisations involved and engage with over 800 schoolchildren and students.

The theme of the event is “You Are Your Future” in order to attract, excite and inspire those attending in that what lies ahead are fantastic careers in STEM based industries. The format of the event will follow the highly successful approach in previous years of Activities, Exposure and Experiences provided by key companies and specialist organisations.

The Event History page provides a snapshot overview of the Your Future, Your Ambition journey to date.
