Brief History

ABOUT V2020

V2020 was birthed in 2009 out of the passion of Ayo and a group of people of like minds, to inspire young people to greater heights in their respective fields. To achieve this, V2020 adopts instructive and reformative social, leadership skills training, sports/exercises to achieve its objectives.
V2020 enhances people’s personal development through wider community involvement, train, empower, and skill them through coaching, mentoring; thereby improving their self-confidence and esteem.


 

“At V2020, we believe in empowering individuals and enabling them to be the best versions of themselves. We are fulfilled by this".

V2020'S AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

V2020 is a charitable organisation that is dedicated to empowering people and strengthening communities. Specifically, our aims and objectives are;

  • Reduce anti-social behaviour among young people in our community through productive engagement

  • Empower people of varied background especially young people from the BMEA communities with actionable tools for dealing with real life situations

  • Prepare young people for leadership roles, challenge them to change for good

  • Lay foundation for healthy living and structured sporting activities, increase participation in constructive leisure time activities.

  • Provide opportunities to engage in positive and fun activities.

WHAT WE DO

WE RUN LOCAL PROJECTS

V2020 organizes several local projects within the UK which act as platforms for empowering individuals. Although several nationalities participate, V2020 local projects are geared towards disadvantaged individuals particularly young people within its immediate community. Each project is centred around a particular theme and provides V2020 the chance to develop individuals in specific spheres of life.

WE ORGANIZE SOCIAL SPORTS

V2020 views sports as a key medium and platform to empower individuals. Social sports provides an environment and opportunity where individuals can learn valuable life and social skills in a sporting environment. Again, apart from the chance to exercise the body, these usually represent an opportunity to meet new people, interact, build networks, develop a cooperative attitude and team spirit.

TRAINING AND LEADERSHIP COURSES

As an AQA approved centre, V2020 also organises suitable educational programs to empower individuals. Our programmes focus on a diverse range of topics. As an example, The Digital Academy project focussed on empowering individuals with the digital skills needed to be relevant in an ever advancing technological world.

TRANSNATIONAL PROJECTS

V2020 partners with various organizations around the world to deliver projects. In collaboration with like-minded organizations, we have delivered projects in Italy, Romania, Cyprus, Czech republic,Republic of Ireland, Germany, Jordan, Georgia, Bulgaria, Poland and Turkey. Transnational projects afford participants the opportunity to meet with people of different cultural orientation and background and to positively learn from each other
