Welcome to LVN

The Power of an Hour


LVN is a charity that asks professionals to volunteer one hour of time to inspire young people.


“Ones ability is heavily dependent on their connections and social networks (Vygotsky 1987)”. The LVN mission is to bring to young people, from disadvantaged backgrounds, a network that is usually only afforded to middle class young people. LVN helps to build the networks of vulnerable young people by asking adults to donate one hour of their time to help inspire the hopes of the next generation. 

We have worked with educationalists and behaviour scientists to create a series of engagement programs that maximise on the power of the hour. In addition LVN have developed a signposting app to ensure young people are aware of all support available. LVN is a Not-for-Profit organisation. We believe in a sharing economy. We ask adults to share their knowledge and expertise with the less advantaged.

The LVN App has three core functions

  1. Easy for volunteers to sign up
  2. Outreach & support tool for youth
  3. Help young people find opportunities


Use the LVN App to find out what is going on in your area. We feature events, projects and courses, apprenticeship opportunities and much more.
