Prospex is an award winning grassroots, Islington-based youth charity, supporting young people aged 8-21 whose life chances are affected through measures outside their control; poverty, social deprivation, high unemployment and crime.
Founded in 2001, the organisation works to address these negative influences, often resulting in low self-esteem and poor school attendance, leading to limited employment prospects.
Through the provision of positive relationships together with transferable life and employability skills, young people are able to broaden their horizons outside the limits of their existing thinking and are given the tools to achieve their goals.

Current projects include a Volkswagen Polo, which the youth groups are "customising".
Just recently we have embarked on a new project with Greenpower Education Trust, where we are building an IET Formula 24 Race Car. This car is purely powered by electricity. Please see:
