‘Project 10’ is a programme designed to get ten young people every year ready for work.

Project 10

Many young people in the UK leave school with a good education and full of aspirations, but without the tools they need to really fulfil their potential. Project 10 aims to provide real world support, techniques and networks to assist them in achieving their career goals.

With so many young people leaving school and colleges with qualifications and no direction, Project 10 is a programme designed to focus minds, create a strategy and implement a plan to put a selection of committed and determined young people on the right path to achieve their potential and ready them for work.

Based on the principles that our CEO & Founder, Dean Forbes has adopted all his working life, it is a programme that delivers proven results – a programme open to applicants from any social, cultural or educational background.

Project 10’s selection process has been designed to find determined candidates with real commitment and work ethic.

It focuses on some very simple ideas that make a real difference to success, while also giving applicants experience of working with commercial organisations, as well as access to placements within sectors of their own choosing. 

The result is a programme that broadens young peoples’ horizons and equips them with essential tools to ensure success – a rarity in existing mentoring schemes, but the ‘new norm’ of Project 10.

How it all started: Our Game

Today, we know Francis Duku as the owner and CEO of Our Game, an organisation that is dedicated to providing effective support to, and addressing the gaps in the semi-professional and amateur game. What a lot of people don't know is that the concept of Our Game goes all the way back to Francis Duku's years as a football player for Gravesend. 

In a pre-season fixture for Gravesend, Francis Duku broke his ankle attempting an overhead kick. This misfortune put an end to his childhood dream of playing professional football, but proved to be the inspiration behind his plans to revolutionise the game for many others.
