Skill-Based Volunteering

Skill-Based Volunteering – We invite inspiring business owners and their employees to join us in tackling social issues, developing individuals and supporting good local causes that grow our community.

Our Mission

Is to support the educational attainment of young people and promoting the entry of minority-led enterprises into the mainstream of economic activity. We do this by designing integrated frameworks instead of “silo” based programmes. We do this to enable meaningful participation from underrepresented groups in education and business. Our approach encourages disadvantaged groups to aspire, apply, enter and succeed

Our Story

Cognitive Paths

… was founded two years ago with the aim to provide a cultural education framework for young people aged 8 – 16 from diverse backgrounds. In our discovery stage, we noticed a need for administrative functions and marketing services. Starting an education program and business support was the answer to our findings.

Combining our lived experiences, cultural heritage and theoretical knowledge led to the formation of Cognitive Paths. Our mission was to create an umbrella organisation that supports informal structures that mainly operate locally and are discouraged by compliance and complicated procedures. We believe that Cognitive Paths can help with the burden, costs and mental capacity required to grow and sustain micro-enterprises to be investable.

This is a competitive work placement environment. Every day I'm challenged to do something that I've never done. I think that coming from a foreign country " Italy " and being catapulted into a different reality, languages, traditions and settling down is not easy, but in the environment with Cognitive Paths get me working in the right away. They are all very friendly and ready to help everyone to learn how to work in a team that works for a single purpose, learn to relate and divide tasks to achieve success.
