DMK Potential is a charity that seeks to support young people and give them a chance, by amplifying and championing their voices to those in power, engaging and empowering them to make a difference, including by supporting them to develop the skills to do so, and providing them with opportunities to make that difference, as well as to further develop skills for the future, within their communities or at a wider scale.
We currently run two flagship projects: DMK Advantage and DMK Music. DMK Advantage wants to create a space where young people are able to find volunteering opportunities in their local community, with the support of our volunteers and eventually, we have the aim of creating an online database of volunteering opportunities for young people, therefore not only supporting young people interested but supporting other non-profit organisations and charities in spreading the word about the work they do. This project is also looking directly at supporting disadvantaged young people - those that are the least likely to be able to receive a volunteering opportunity within in their local area, with DMK Advantage being there for them and leading them through the steps to finding them the perfect opportunity to develop skills they will be able to apply in their future. DMK Music is a youth music project, giving young people the opportunity to release their own music to the world with the support of our volunteers, eventually developing their voice and confidence to inspire others around them.
