  • Who We Are

    The Us Programme, founded in 2016 by Victoria Azubuike, is a project with the mission to help educate and inspire young females mainly from disadvantaged backgrounds to break boundaries and achieve goals.


    We understand that part of the way of becoming an individual who makes a positive impact is to learn the secrets from those who are already succeeding and by seeking out available opportunities.

    We aim to do this by offering self development, continuous support to ambitious female students and special access to a network of successful women in industry dedicated to sharing their knowledge and willing to helping you on your journey.

    Aimed at female students aged 15 to 19 (currently sitting GCSEs, A-levels or BTECs), our annual conference is comprised of many elements including case studies, panel discussions, group presentations, interactive workshops, networking opportunities and an on-going support and mentoring scheme.

  • Aims



    The Us Programme aims to help educate young females between the ages of 14 to 19 who are keen to learn about how they can achieve their career goals. We aim to offer a support system during our students’ academic careers through our annual conferences and development sessions.



    We hope to be a bridge that allows eager, intellectual and determined females to build long lasting relationships with professionals and like minded individuals.



    We understand without constant personal development it is not possible to reach our full potential. By providing our development sessions and annual conference we hope to encourage young women to pursue their chosen career path.


    Our mission is to continue to grow through engaging more female students and through our collaborative efforts with partner organisations.

    We all grow up with role models. Those who inspire us, and those who we aspire to become. Those who make a difference to our lives, or to the world. The best thing about role models is that they’re individual to us. Whatever they represent, how close they are to us, whether they’re a loved one or...
    Innovation to me is all about being different, doing something bold. Behind an innovative idea is an abundance of creativity that enables one’s story to be at the forefront of their initiatives. Think of Mae Carol Jemison, the first black woman to travel into space, or Katherine Johnson, a...
    When I think of innovation, the first word that comes to mind is creativity. The creativity that allows the transformation and reinvention of the old into the new. Through innovation, things are ever-changing and constantly developing. Innovative minds see beyond what is accepted as ‘the norm’. ...
