"When we help ourselves we find moments of happiness. When we help others, we find lasting fulfillment." - Simon Sinek
"Having experienced a quarter-life crisis myself which affects 86% of millennials (The Guardian), I understand the struggle and frustration of accessing resources and support. And now I want to share with you what I've learnt from my own trial and error." - Lily, Founder
There is so much pressure these day to get an internship, graduate, compete with thousands of graduates for your first job, somehow save enough money for a mortgage deposit but also travel the world to gain life experiences all while finding time to juggle your relationships.
But many can't access the support they need to reach their goals.
To all the young people who are struggling with life, feeling lost and without support, we have been in your shoes and want to help. That is why Encompassible exists.
We believe in lifelong learning. Listening and learning from the stories of experiences from others helps us to reflect on and navigate our own life. Join our community and be part of our ecosystem network of opportunities and stories today.
We believe everyone has a story to share and that peers who have lived experiences can offer invaluable emotional, social and practical support to youth who are on a similar journey.
To empower and connect youth (aged 18-30) to mentors who share their experiences, knowledge and learnings to guide young people on their own life journey with meaningful employment and end the vicious cycle of "need experience to get a job, need a job to get experience."
Care - acting with compassion and care
Courage - evolve, take action and build grit
Collaboration - synergising together to create impact
Change - seeking continuous improvement
Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all:
Goal 4.4 - By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all:
Goal 8.6 - By 2020, substantially reduce the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training.
We believe that although education unlocks decent opportunities, not enough is being done to bridge the gap between school to job opportunities. Youth are the leaders of tomorrow and the future depends on it.
