It's finally 2020! We cannot wait to see what the year has in store for the Vlogstar Challenge! We’re so excited to get back into running workshops and meeting many more inspirational young people from across London & Essex. Before we let you know what we're up too for 2020, let's go back and revisit our autumn highlights of 2019.
October 2019, saw us launch Season 5 of the Vlogstar Challenge after a successful 4th season of the programme! We were able to work with a handful of organisations such as Unitas Youth Zone, King Henry School, Kelmscott School, St Francis Xavier Sixth Form College, Young Carers & more.
We were very fortunate to work with Snap Inc to hold two of our monthly open workshops (November & December) at their main office in London. By doing so, we received various content from our amazing and talented young people, who very much enjoyed there time at their prestigious venue!
What stood out the most for us most this autumn was the variety of different organisations we visited across London and Essex. From young carers to learners with hearing difficulties, one thing is for sure, once we empower young people with the skills and confidence to find their voice, they shared some incredible stories.
Make sure to check out below these three amazing and powerful submissions!
Chantelle's awareness about: 'Sickle Cell'

Our mission for 2020 is to reach more young people than ever. We want young people from London and Essex to influence a generation through their stories!
