Endeavour is a small, national charity working at grass roots level with some of England's most disadvantaged, disaffected and forgotten young people. It helps build new futures for young people who are at risk of being excluded from education or who don’t have a mainstream education place; are at risk of offending or joining gangs; are newly arrived to the country; have chaotic home lives, are looked after children or young carers; or have learning difficulties. Its programmes of personal development, education and social action help young people to develop the skills they need to face their problems, tackle them head-on, and succeed where they may have previously failed.
