Jon Egging Trust
The Jon Egging Trust (JET) & Impetus
I am absolutely chuffed to bits that JET has been selected as one of Impetus’ chosen charities. The entire JET team is incredibly excited about how this collaboration will further strengthen our impactful programmes and enable us to transform the lives of even more young people across the UK over the years to come. Thank you, Impetus!

The need: Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are struggling to engage in school often face adversity in their lives and have lost focus and self-belief. This can present as a lack of engagement in the classroom, disruptive behaviour, or persistent absenteeism, with knock-on effects on learning. There is strong evidence to suggest that Social and Emotional Learning interventions can lead to gains in academic performance.
Our charity partner: The Jon Egging Trust's Blue Skies programmes work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are struggling to engage in school to make informed choices about their futures, and re-engage with their education. Their programmes combine team building and workplace experiences in the STEM, military, space and business sectors with in-school sessions.
Our impact: We will support the Jon Egging Trust to prepare for future growth, refine their intervention, improve the consistency of delivery, and capitalise on the strongest elements of their intervention programmes.
JET was the spark that changed everything. After my first year of the blue skies programme, my mum saw a massive change in me. I would not stop talking!
