Had an email or phone call about one of our keep warm events? That will be Beck…

Amy has worked for NCS for a while now and worked with young people for several years! She love’s working on NCS because she gets to see how much young people can achieve when they work together in teams and create inspirational projects within the community. Her highlights of NCS range from seeing young people face their fears and challenge themselves in the adventure phase to watching young people speak in graduations alongside friends they wouldn’t have met if they hadn’t participated.

Pete joined Future Foundations in 2009 and oversees the systems, processes and finances of the organisation. In his role as Director, he supports the staff team with strategic, operational and financial management.
Pete is passionate about enabling people to be the best they can be and achieve their full potential. He has worked with young people through his life from his early teens as a volunteer at his local youth club, to being a long standing part of the Senior Management Team at King’s College London Students’ Union, through to his former role as Chief Operating Officer at Future Foundations.
Pete is now the Chief Executive Officer of our sister company, Future Solutions.
I started my journey with Future Foundations as a coach eight years ago. Using my performance background (I trained as an actor at Drama Centre London) I quickly realised that with the combination of this and FF’s brilliant programmes I could really contribute in helping young people to make real change in their lives.
Having thrown myself into the coaching role and gaining invaluable on programme experience I started to undertake the running of the programmes. National Citizen Service (NCS) for Berkshire was my first challenge, the success of which led to FF winning the chance to run NCS Leaders for the top 100 students in the country. My highlight was taking twenty students to 10 Downing Street to discuss youth provision in this country with the Prime Minister’s right hand men.
I then spent 2 years full time at FF headquarters in Clapham as a Senior Project Manager running all kinds of programmes from one day to residential, as well as being involved in marketing, website design and sales.
I am thrilled to be currently running the AWS Get IT programme in Partnership with Amazon Web Services, which is visionary year 8 programme to inspire young people, especially girls, to break down gender stereotypes and to get into IT.
