The past 20 years has seen IntoUniversity grow from a homework club in North Kensington to a national charity with centres across England and Scotland, covering many of the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the UK. The growth has been remarkable, and most importantly, has enabled us to impact the lives of so many more young people. In the first year that IntoUniversity was launched, Rachel and her co-founders set themselves what they thought at the time was the ambitious target of working with 75 students in that year. Now 20 years on, over 190,000 students have been through the IntoUniversity programme across our 39 centres, and we’re continuing to grow, with more centres due to be launched in 2024.
As we reach the end of our anniversary year, we wanted to look back to celebrate the achievements of all of the young people who have been with us on the IntoUniversity journey over the last twenty years. We also take the chance to look ahead at the next 20 years, including a taster of some of the upcoming key priorities for the organisation, as well as some commentary on the future of education and potential challenges and opportunities for those working within the social mobility sector.
Thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey over the last 20 years, we hope you enjoy reflecting on the journey as much as we have.
