Ambition Aspire Achieve (AAA) was founded in June 2016 by Kevin Jenkins OBE, because of a longstanding desire to provide opportunities for children and young people in the London Borough of Newham and surrounding areas.
Since inception, AAA has delivered a range of services based at the Terence Brown Arc in the Park, an inclusive resource, delivery and neighbourhood play hub for children and young people living in Canning Town. Building on the success of services delivered at Arc in the Park, AAA's second neighbourhood hub, the Glyn Hopkin Abbey Hub was opened in Stratford in the summer of 2018.
AAA now delivers a wide range of projects and services from both hubs and across local communities in Newham. Our work particularly focuses on and supports children and young people most in need, including those with disabilities or additional needs. Our current work includes after school clubs, holiday play and youth activities, youth clubs, disability specific activities, detached youth projects, information advice and support for vulnerable young people, mentoring and personal development programmes, doorstep inclusive sports clubs and outward-bound activities and experiences.
For all children and young people, regardless of background, ability or disability to reach their full potential, to build the esteem to have Ambition, the confidence to Aspire and the skills and self-belief to Achieve.
To provide children and young people in the London Borough of Newham and surrounding areas with fully inclusive experiences and opportunities to flourish, with support to help them overcome any challenges they experience, leading to positive outcomes that make a difference and change their lives.
"There is no other organisation in Newham that matches the exceptional and extraordinary work of Ambition, Aspire, Achieve in engaging our young people in Newham, raising their expectations and their life chances", Lyn Brown MP West Ham
