History

Academy Achievers is a not-for-profit organisation, set up with an aim to improve the quality of life for local young people ‘in and around Newham’ by offering excellent services which provide a range of educational, social, emotional, cultural, health and wellbeing and recreational opportunities. In addition, we provide training, consulting and informal advice to our users on a wide range of issues and signpost them to the appropriate services for further information. Academy Achievers is a place where young people from diverse backgrounds come to socialise, learn and enjoy. Working in partnership with the local community and voluntary agencies in developing and enhancing our program and adapting to emerging needs and new initiatives. To achieve this there is structured programmes and different activities including training sessions that we put in place to help support young people between the ages of 5-19, with different abilities and who range from different cultures.
