New stretch target

In essence the more we raise the more we can do!  Any additional funds will be used to expand the programme to accept children and young people from other parts of South Yorkshire. 

Our background; 

Endeavour is a Sheffield based charity that was established in 1955. Our team of staff and volunteers are passionate and committed to make sure young people who face a range of challenging circumstances can reach their full potential.  

Active Holidays!

Funding raised from this campaign will be used directly to pay project staff to deliver an innovative and exciting project that will support children and young people aged 8-16 from deprived areas of Sheffield.  

The project will offer young people the opportunity to participate in a range of exciting activities during school holidays that have been carefully designed to help young people develop a range of essential life skills that will help them create a more positive future. 

The programme will include;

- Exciting and challenging outdoor activities such as climbing of canoeing.

- Sports and team games.

- Arts, crafts and cooking sessions. 

- Vocational activities in catering and gardening.

- Personal and social development opportunities. 

- Volunteering training and involvement in social action projects.

The project will target and engage children and young people that come from communities and families that lack financial resources and are unable to afford positive activities or holidays. The project will work with a range of partners to identify the children and young people most in need to ensure 100% of the funding raised benefits children most in need. 

We hope you will share our vision and support our programme!!
