We deliver training and educational projects, as well as coaching and mentoring sessions, that enable our beneficiaries to use education as a tool for personal and collective improvement.
Our ongoing and recent projects in the areas of education include:
- Hope After Covid
- Youth Innovation Fellowship Programme
Hope After Covid Project
PCAP won the King’s College Civic Challenge for 2020-2021 for its Hope After Covid project that uses traditional African wellness techniques to support local people to overcome the negative effects of COVID-19.
Following intensive outreach campaigns, PCAP was able to enrol 55 people from Lambeth, Southwark, Wandsworth and Westminster and enable them to overcome the negative impact of COVID-19 on their lives, using tools including music, visualisation and breathing exercises.

- Coaching to overcome challenges
- Techniques to improve self-care and wellbeing.

Elevate is a 3-year project we launched in January 2020, aimed at providing career and personal development to 150 young people aged 16-21 who are not in education, employment or training (NEET), or who are at risk of becoming NEET and getting involved in crime in Lambeth, Wandsworth and Southwark.
This project is supported by the London Mayor’s Young Londoners’ Fund
