Our international work in third World countries is gaining momentum and our International Student Exchange programme kicks off this year with exchanges between students from the UK, Brazil, Nigeria, Thailand and South Africa
Our mission is to empower the next generation by providing them with bespoke developmental opportunities to engage in constructive pursuits leading to accredited qualifications, employment

WISE Youth Trust works with children and young people aged 7-21 years, particularly those from disadvantaged communities. Over the past 32 years, we have been involved in numerous community initiatives aimed at promoting civic responsibility, community safety, cohesion and social inclusion.
WISE Youth Trust has evolved out of Westward Boys FC in order to expand the organisation’s work and to provide a comprehensive range of opportunities for children and young people through sports and outdoor pursuits, arts & craft, employment and social enterprise training
Our organisation have a track record of delivering sustainable outcomes and opportunities for children and young people to participate in community activities. Our organisation has been responsible for providing competitive and recreational football to over 2500 young people since its formation.
Among those, are international players in the top flight of professional football such as Ashley Cole, Scott Parker, Joe Cole, Lee Bowyer, Jay Boothroyd; who all got their introduction to youth football at the club. The sports club currently runs 14 teams ranging in the U7 to Adult categories participating in local and regional leagues and is currently working towards the FA Charter Standard status
We believe that children and young people need the best start in life in order to flourish, and the experiences that they have through these years can make all the difference. Therefore, our provisions are designed to meet the universal outcomes envisaged for young people in the Government's Framework, Every Child Matters.
To achieve these outcomes, we enable them identify their own pathways; allow them to reach their potential and take responsibility for their own growth, developing skills and competencies for working life in the process.
