Who we support

We take huge pride in the young people we support on the Star Track programme. Whether they are currently on the programme or are alumni, they continue to shape and inform the way Star Track is delivered. What’s more, they all aspire to do very different things and they all have an abundance of spark and a ton of mettle. They aren’t just participants, they are co-creators. As Suraj once said: “As we take from, we also help shape it.” Too true.

If you would like to continue to support them in any way, especially through providing career-focused mentoring, job opportunities, work experience or anything else, please get in touch with Kazvare (kazvare[AT]sparkandmettle.org.uk).
