Why we need your help

Tower to Tower Tour 2019

The Transformation Trust is 10 years old as a charity, and over the last decade, we have worked with hundreds of thousands of young people, all from areas of high deprivation, helping them discover their talents and “think big” about what the future holds for them.

Every year, we work with around 80,000 young people providing them with access to opportunities and experiences that they otherwise would not have.

We believe that everyone has something they are amazing at! They just sometimes need a bit of help to discover what that is. Our work is all about helping young people discover that talent, and then do something about it.

Every four years, through our Inspire US programme we take a group of sixthform students who want to go on and study politics at university out to the US to be campaign volunteers in the final two weeks of the Presidential election.

In October 2019, we will be taking 20 students from across 5 UK schools out to the swing state of Florida to experience what promises to be a nail-biting election. They will see high sophisticated campaigning, working alongside seasoned campaigners, and even get to meet some of the main players in American politics.

 Alumni of Inspire US 2012 and Inspire US 2016 met President Obama, Joe Biden and Bill Clinton to name just a few. These students went on to secure places at top universities in both the UK and the US as a result of taking part and demonstrating their passion for politics:

In 2016 I was able to travel to Florida with the Transformation Trust, to work on the penultimate two weeks of US Presidential Elections. This was – hand on heart – the driving force that encouraged me to apply to Harvard University, where I am now in my junior year.” (Chardonnae Deslandes, Harvard University)

As the charity partner of the Tower to Tower Tour, all funds raised will go towards Inspire US 2020. (If we raise more than we need for Inspire US 2020, additional funds will be used to run another programme or will go into our unrestricted reserves).
