20/20 Levels is a social mobility organisation, empowering Black and racially underrepresented young people through opportunities to maximise their potential.
Whether you want to land your dream job, build a business, or just figure out where you’re headed – we’ll help you find success by opening doors to the best opportunities.
So you can put your future in the best hands possible. Your own.
Our programmes have transformed the lives of over a thousand young people across London. With over 60% of our candidates gaining new employment within 3 months of completing our programme.
We strive to deliver the best support and resources possible. We work with the best businesses and we ask that our young people try to show up as their best selves.
To be overlooked is to be denied opportunities in various aspects of life and business. In the UK, Black and other ethnic minorities receive just 0.24% of capital funding in the UK; 25% of businesses fail in their first year. For overlooked entrepreneurs, that percentage is even higher; and when it comes to funding, only 1% of Black businesses, for example, received investments.
Our mission is simple: to help change that, to give overlooked entrepreneurs the opportunities they deserve.
