Eastside Young Leaders’ Academy is a remarkable organisation that is transforming lives. It has been a privilege to watch its growth over the course of the last eleven years and I have nothing but admiration for Ray, Anne and all the EYLA team for the work they do. At its heart is a belief that it is enabling young people to be in charge of their own futures. I have seen first-hand the difference that EYLA has made and what is particularly impressive is that EYLA alumni recognise they have a responsibility to make a difference.
