Giving Back

Giving back is at the heart of our business. We are committed to working with organisations that are helping make the world a better place. By forming partnerships with charities and organisations it enables us to help raise awareness of their work, build a network of like-minded individuals and look at ways to bring yoga into the equation to help improve lives.

Our 2018 Charity of the Year

About SkyWay

SkyWay Charity seeks to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people aged 8 to 25 years living in deprived inner-London neighbourhoods, enabling them to achieve personal goals, realise their potential and contribute positively to their community.
 
We provide end-to-end support to young people with a particular focus on the transition ages supporting the young people to become positive role models and leaders in their communities.  We aim to empower young people to address the challenges they face in life and make positive choices for their future.
 
We carry out a range of year-round activities focusing on:
● progression pathways;
● improved health and well-being; and
● leadership, social and emotional skills and outlook.
 
Activities include: 'drop in' youth club activities in various locations; outreach and detached work; sports activities; employment and training; enterprise support; alternative education provision; holiday activities; and lifestyle training and support (including healthy eating, personal safety and sexual health workshops)

About SkyWay's Peer Support Programme

SkyWay Ambassadors is SkyWay's highly commended peer development programme. The Ambassadors are trained and gain qualifications to support the delivery of activities and workshops for younger children who see them as positive role models they want to emulate. SkyWay Ambassadors volunteer and work in the local community, delivering activities in community settings and schools, and some continue training to become the next cohort of youth workers.

SkyWay Ambassadors specialise in providing support in:

  • Mental health awareness
  • Sexual health
  • Money management
  • Healthy eating and budgeting
  • Sports coaching
  • Leadership and mentoring
  • Life skill

MoreYoga is keen for funds raised to be channelled into these programmes as it gives these young people real opportunity to build a positive future.

Ways we are helping SkyWay

Yoga Courses

We plan to initiate a programme of yoga courses for SkyWay starting September 2018. We would love to help these young people improve their lives by improving the connection between their mind, body and spirit – enabling them to build yoga into their resilience infrastructure.

Fundraising Events

We will be running fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for programmes for SkyWay. We are particularly hopeful about seeing how many Peer Programme places we can sponsor. Stay tuned for details of events that you can get involved in.

Join our Karma Army

Ever considered volunteering? Now’s your chance. SkyWay would welcome help for specific projects or tasks – and are also open to general volunteering enquiries. See details of the Karma Army mission below and if you’ve got skills or time to share, please contact them on the form.

Raising funds through no show and late cancellation charges

Any profit made from the collection of no show and late cancellation charges will be donated directly to SkyWay. As we’ve said, these charges are not a profit making exercise and we have great pleasure in seeing that money going towards programmes that improve the lives of these young Londoners.
