Yep, you read it right - Avolve are going to be jumping 10,000 feet out of a perfectly functioning plane! Why are we doing such a ridiculous thing you may ask? Well, as a society that has made a new pledge to bring about awareness of children in care and care leavers as well as our mentoring, we want to start as we mean to go on, big!
As the President, I am extremely proud of what our committee has achieved since starting our academic year in September. Unfortunately, with excitement for a full 2019, came a bombshell - I lost a dear friend on the 28th of December 2018 to cancer.
Therefore, what better way to keep our loved ones alive than to take them with us? Avolve are passionate about the lives and ambitions of young people, ALL young people, especially those disadvantaged by circumstances beyond their control. Avolve will be jumping 10,000 feet out of a plane in 2020 for CLIC Sargent, a hands on charity that support young people with cancer and their families.
This will be a big team effort, and we hope to have many mentors on board as well as the committee. We will be regularly uploading blogs/vlogs to share our progress with you, and bring you more details about the dreaded day in due course and what you can do to support us. STAY TUNED!
