Over the past 6 months we at Ekota Academy have been working hard to create projects to expand and further develop our services and offer in youth and community work in the borough. Over the past 6 months we have built up a team of professional JNC qualified youth workers, mentors and advisors to help us reach out and support more young people in Barking and Dagenham.

We believe that working in partnership with other agencies and organisation in the borough we would be able to support more young people access youth service provisions, get help and advice on accessing education and training programmes and diverting young people from crime and anti social behaviour by getting them involved in more positive activities in the community.

If you are a youth work professional, youth and community organisation or funder then please get in touch with us as we have amazing plans for present and future to support our young people change their lives from negativity to positivity and help those with talent to nature their talent, innovation and creativity.
