Team London has partnered with the charity Free The Children UK to deliver 'Team London Young Ambassadors' for schools across the capital.   We have already met our target to work with 400 schools this academic year. 

A full assessment of year one of the Team London Young Ambassadors programme will be conducted over the summer of 2014, with a measurement and evaluation report to be completed by the end of September.  To date we have had excellent feedback from students and teachers alike.
