Uplift TNG has the mission to help young people aged 11 – 19 from black and minority ethnic (BAME) communities and disadvantaged backgrounds, by connecting them with professionals in various sectors who have climbed up the career ladder.
By connecting young people with professionals, they will be able to expand their network before entering the workplace.
We want young people to develop a range of skills that they can use, whether this is for an insight day, job interview or similar.
MEET THE TEAM
Adeola Gbakinro is a graduate from the University of Wolverhampton who founded Uplift TNG in 2017. After realising the lack of support from employers for students at non-Russell group universities, Adeola developed Uplift TNG to help young people from marginalised backgrounds connect with potential employers in different industries.
