Ultra Education and our It Takes a Village project have been featured by Operation Black Vote!
The organisation; founded by Lord Simon Wooley states “At our core Operation Black Vote exists to ensure we have greater racial justice and equality throughout the UK.
We work specifically, but not exclusively within the democratic and civic framework to deliver our objectives.
We seek to inspire BME communities to engage with our public institutions in order to address the persistent race inequalities we face in areas such as: education, health and employment.”
Ultra Education are thrilled to have our efforts to empower Black Caribbean Boys in Brent and to boost their educational attainment, confidence, and life skills recognised by the organisation.
The programme offers free exciting entrepreneurship workshops in school and after school for boys KS2-KS4, while aiming to improve grades, attendance, behaviour and attainment in Black boys of Caribbean heritage.
During the Operation Black Vote feature our founder Julian ‘The Ultrapreneur’ Hall explained: “In order for them [local authorities] to think about how they could transform the lives of any child, we should use the proverb of it takes a village. Children don’t just exist in schools, they exist in the community and at home, so our work would support teachers, parents and we work with other community organisations to support black children.”
