About us:

Hull and East Yorkshire (HEY) Children’s University is a local charity that strives to give every child the opportunities they deserve, no matter what circumstances they were born into. Many children around Hull and the East Riding do not have the same opportunities that other children have in the UK. Many have never been much further than the street in which they live and some children will never visit another city until they reach adulthood. Because of this, some children don’t have any aspirations for the future.

Society places a huge importance on academic success- but what about those children that don’t excel in academia? HEY Children’s University believes that every child is brilliant at something, and that might be something different to academic talent. But how can those children find out their unique talents if they don’t have the opportunity to try new things?

‘If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid’- Albert Einstein

HEY Children’s University gives local children the opportunities that they otherwise wouldn’t have and gives them the chance to discover their interests and talents- the chance to create their own dreams. The charity aims to light up every path that a child could take and show them their options. Despite what the name implies, HEY Children’s University is about ensuring that children know about all the pathways into careers: be that an apprenticeship, starting their own business, working their way up in a company or attending college or University. Every child should understand what pathways exist.

HEY Children’s University offers a diverse range of experiences that are designed to raise aspirations, confidence and self esteem. Some of these experiences include days at local businesses where the children learn about the industry, meet the staff and take part in a range of activities. The charity also gives children the chance to visit other cities such as London and Edinburgh, offering sleepovers in exciting venues such as the Natural History Museum and the HMS Belfast battleship.
