Introduction

Footsteps for Future


Footsteps for Future begins on the 1st of October, challenging you to hit 10,000 steps a day until the 31st of October – that’s 310,000 steps in total!!

Taking part in Footsteps for Future will help raise vital funds so Future Youth Zone can be here for more young people across East London. Your 10,000 steps a day ensure that Future can continue to give young people somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to.

If walking isn’t your thing, why not try running 31k throughout the whole of October, cycling 10k a day, or challenge yourself to swim 10 lengths of a pool a day!

However you get your feet moving, you’ll be supporting young people at Future Youth Zone.

Solomon's Story

Phoebe’s Story

I joined Future because my sister told me about it. She’s a young leader, and she said it would be somewhere fun to go. I’ve always been into a lot of things, and Future was just a place where I could actually do all of them and try some new stuff. 

I did the Irish dancing and that was really good. I do other types of dance outside of Future, so it was good to learn a new style that I don’t do already.

I like coming to Future because it’s a good escape, and I can give my mum and dad some quiet while I’m away. The staff are easy to talk to and I feel like I can connect with them. Everyone is really nice.

Coming to Future means that I always have somewhere to go, and when I’m a senior I’ll be able to come all the time. And doing the karaoke has helped me to improve my singing and feel more confident to sing in front of people. 

When you come here, you can do fun things. If you have any worries, there’s always someone to talk to.
