Yes Futures is a multi award-winning charity which exists to empower the most disadvantaged young people to make ambitious choices and realise their potential. Through developing their confidence, resilience and life skills students find success both in and out of the classroom.

Through our programmes, students receive a series of personalised coaching sessions, raising aspirations and reducing barriers to achievement. Alongside this, students attend three inspirational trips where they develop their skills in real-world situations and challenge themselves to achieve beyond their expectations.

The William Wates Foundation is enabling 250 disadvantaged young people to benefit from the life-changing impact of our programmes. We have had an exceptional impact so far, with 91% of our students feeling more prepared for the future, and 83% of students becoming more motivated to achieve at school. With this additional funding, we are excited to be able to expand our reach further and move closer to a future where all young people are confident, resilient and lead fulfilling lives.
