About Us

Future First Global works with school networks, NGOs and governments to build communities of relatable role models for young people. We believe that alongside formal education, the inspiration, guidance and opportunities we get from the people around us play a huge part in our life outcomes. And yet, whether we have access to networks like this usually depends on good luck rather than any formal structure.

FFG works with partners around the world who, like us, want to change that. Over the last five years, we’ve supported organisations and schools from South Africa, Rwanda, Pakistan, Australia, India and Sierra Leone to mobilise the advice, leadership and funds that already exist within their communities, in their former students. Former students are an incredible and largely untapped resource that every school has, but rarely are they tapping into it. We think there are over 500 million adults globally who would give back to their old schools if they were asked, and yet we estimate only 2% are currently doing so.

FFG advises partners on the processes and structures that can make them successful at engaging their alumni to further opportunities for young people, but we allow them to determine their specific outcomes.

Our ambition is to build a movement, so that in 10 years’ time, 10% of young people globally have access to role models, support and guidance from former students. We have three key areas of work to pursue this:

  • Consultancy: We work in partnership with organisations who have local contextual knowledge to build stronger alumni communities;
  • Advocacy: We work to raise the profile of alumni engagement for schools and programmes serving young people globally;
  • Sharing and Learning: To create a genuine global movement, we’re interested in fostering ongoing sharing and learning between our partners by building a global network of alumni leaders.
