The Key is a North East based charity which exists to inspire belief in young people. For over 26 years, we’ve had a strong track record for making a positive impact upon the lives of some of the North East's most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people. We've achieved this by providing them with the opportunities they need, and the support they deserve, to develop vital life skills and build their self-confidence and self-esteem through our youth-led Key Framework.
The Key want to create a world where young people believe in their ideas and take responsibility for living them. Our mission is to help young people realise their potential by discovering what they are capable of and helping them to generate the drive and determination to do something meaningful with it. Our goal is to help young people form a growth mindset in order to lead more fulfilling lives in the future.
The Key aims to:
- We aim to inspire young people to believe in their ideas and empower them to take the lead and explore their won makings and motivations.
- We aim to support young people to build vital life skills and improve their self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience.
- Our ultimate aim is to provide young people with the support and opportunities they need to form a growth mindset in order to lead more independent, successful and sustainable lives in the future.
