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.

Your Passport to Progression

“Ones ability is heavily dependent on their connections and social networks (Vygotsky 1987)”. Our 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 we 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. Volunteer Sign-up Portal
  2. Youth Outreach & Support Tool
  3. Help young people find opportunities
