Want to make life better for young people in East Ayrshire?

The ‘Hope Hack’ needs you!

Ayrshire College will soon play host to a ‘hackathon’ event for up to 100 young people in East Ayrshire.

A joint venture with What Matters To You, The Hope Collective and East Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership, ‘Hope Hack’ wants you to share your ideas for tackling current social issues, ranging from education and employability to housing, environment and mental health.

Monday 12 June

Ayrshire College, Hill Street, Kilmarnock

10am – 4:30pm

Register via Eventbrite

There will also be free food, a chance to test out DJ skills, and a number of guest speakers, including John Loughton, CEO of Dare2Lead.

Founded in 2011, Dare2Lead is a social enterprise “dedicated to unlocking the leadership potential of people, organisations and communities”. Since its inception it has delivered training and support programmes to some of the UK’s hardest to reach communities, empowering young people to effect positive change regarding issues that concern them.

The ‘Hope Hack’ will take place on Monday 12 June between 10am and 4:30pm within the Kilmarnock campus of Ayrshire College.

Come along and be part of it!
