Empowering young people to make positive change

What People Say…

It was a huge success

humanutopia have trained our young heroes in developing their own confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and outlook on life. They have then cultivated a culture which allows our young people to be role models for younger children within our community.

The impact is tangible

It took about ten minutes to see the potential impact that a partnership with humanutopia could have. We undertook a series of follow up sessions, becoming an official partner school in the process, aimed at developing interdependence and hope in our student body, dispelling myths of what students should be and focusing on what they could be.

They empower strong relationships

The mantra of humanutopia is one that resonates with me personally, but more importantly the trust leaders and Principals in our academies so I know that as we go from strength to strength, the resilience and aptitude of our young people will ensure their life chances and opportunities will grow.
