Degrees of Opportunity is a programme spearheaded by RollaDome, designed to give a range of engagements for young people.
Funded through the London Borough of Hounslow Thriving Communities Fund, the Heathrow Trust and CIVA, this Free initiative targets those young people who, for various reasons, find themselves not in education, employment, or training. RollaDome’s mission is to bring people together and positively impact the lives of young people and their families through the fun and inclusive sport of roller-skating.
“Degrees of Opportunity” collaborates closely with referral partners and host organisations, creating a triad of support. With this, they form a robust network, ensuring that every young person’s journey is comprehensive and well-supported. Once a young person is referred, they embark on a journey of self-discovery, guided by a mentor from “Degrees of Opportunity”. Together, they chalk out a pathway tailored to the individual’s aspirations. Every step of the way, their supportive triangle — comprising the referral partner, host organisation, and Degrees of Opportunity — ensures a seamless experience, catering to all needs, be it logistical or emotional.
The next programme is due to start soon so look out for the great work our young people will be producing!
