Jake led the Schools Project from 2017-2021, visiting over 80 schools and reaching over 35,000 students across London and the UK. As one of the speaking team, he would deliver workshops and assembly programs aimed at helping young people take a positive next step into their future.
Between home life and school life, young people face challenges that they may never get the opportunity to address. Jake's talks aim to open up the conversation on topics such as; character, fear, courage, future, mental health, identity; speaking about these things in an engaging and relevant way.
Young people today, like all of us, can be influenced by so many things; the programs we watch, the teams we support, the music we listen to, the people we spend time with. Influence is defined as “the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behaviour of someone” and it is something we all have.
Jake wants to help young people understand the influence they have and recognise opportunities to use it to have a positive impact in their school, at home, and in society.

He speaks with confidence and passion, which the staff and students thoroughly enjoy.
