We rise logoPreviously known as Raw Talent, the social enterprise helps students to find “meaningful, interesting and purposeful” work experience on real projects.

The name change was decided after consultation with students.

We Rise coaches young people to work in teams to deliver projects that businesses and organisations commission. One group prepared stories about this year’s Brixton Design Trail for the Bugle and Brixton Blog. You can read more here.

The crowdfunding campaign launched at Brixton Cycles earlier this month.

Founder Abigail Melville says: “We need to raise £5,358 to fund a three month community outreach campaign to reach, inspire and recruit the most disengaged young people.

“Our fabulous launch event showed how talented our young people are. We have been overwhelmed by the amazing support we have received so far from our community. But we can’t make a difference without you.
