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.

Passport to Progression

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 call this The Power of an Hour.

We have worked with educationalists and behaviour scientists to create a series of engagement programs that maximise on the power of an hour. In addition we have developed a signposting app to ensure young people are aware of all support available to them. LVN believes in a sharing economy and, for this reason, ask adults to share their knowledge and expertise with the less advantaged.

Our App has three core functions

  1. Volunteer Sign-up Portal
  2. Youth Outreach & Support Tool
  3. Help young people find opportunities
