You Make It (YMI) is a dynamic, award winning and evolving charity that runs 4 month long holistic empowerment programmes for young unemployed and underemployed women from inner London. Over 90% of our beneficiaries are Black and Asian, and all are from working class backgrounds. Our programmes equip women with the confidence, professional networks, experiences, skills and attitude needed to achieve financial independence and greater integration in our ever-exciting capital city.
We have continued to grow rapidly since our formation by the CEO in 2011 with incredible support from a range of funders for our core programmes. In addition to our race equalities work focused on women empowerment, we are dedicated to dismantling racism through You Change It (YCI). This successful anti-racism allyship course is aimed at employers and was pioneered by our CEO in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. In just 15 months, largely through word of mouth, YCI has strengthened the longer-term financial sustainability of the charity by generating earned income, and we’re proud to have taken hundreds of people through the course by working with brilliant companies from varying sectors and sizes – just some include music platform Mixcloud, fashion label Olivia Von Halle, and charities like the Centre for Ageing Better.
YCI comprises a 5 module zoom course (each 90 minutes long) that is facilitated by the CEO and Senior Programmes & Partnerships Manager at YMI, along with external support from trained alumni from our women’s programmes. For more detail about YCI, please email Roxi at you-make-it.org.
