Reach For the Sky

Dragons Den. Enabling young people to reach their potential through social interaction and entrepreneurship.

On Sunday (30/8/2015) I had the chance to take part for the last time this year as a Dragon. 

Five groups of young people had been working on presentations to ask the Dragons for funding to help their own social action priorities. 

The young people come from all backgrounds and before three weeks ago didn’t know each other. Now they are working as a team, all for one and one for all.

It is really inspiring for these old(er) people like us Dragons to see the future is safe with the ideas brought before us. From videos of balloon popping, to cut out paper hands, hashtags and thunderclaps these young people really have taken the mantle of NCS The Challenge and helping their communities.

Most groups have either Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr and will be looking for you to help grow their support, from wherever you are in the world.
