Who we are
BE INSPIRED IS MORE THAN AN EVENT.
After growing up in Care from the age of 4, founder Ashley John-Baptiste, now a Senior BBC Reporter and presenter, has always had his mind set on creating something for young people with similar stories to his own that would help them believe in themselves, see a better future and find out about all the opportunities out there. Opportunities that are there for anyone – regardless of background.
The mission of BE INSPIRED is to help care experienced young people do exactly that.
From world class speakers, panels offering practical and inspirational tools, breakout sessions and workshops giving insight into various industries as well as personal growth tools to fun performances, whether in person or virtually, Be Inspired is set to inspire, empower and equip young people who want to take hold of their future and connect with each other.
For the first time this year Be Inspired will be accessible to care experienced young people across the UK as the experience will be fully online.
