Get The Skills to Get A Job
Young people from all our Youth Zones are now going to receive additional support to help them compete in the job market following the introduction of a new Youth Zone Network employability project.
Thanks to funding from Accenture Foundation UK and AO Smile Foundation, Mahdlo (Oldham), The Factory (Manchester), Wigan Youth Zone, Carlisle Youth Zone, Blackburn Youth Zone and Bolton Lads and Girls Club have received combined grant of £257,000 to implement a new ‘Get A Job’ course, which aims to help young people aged 16-19 years old get the right skills to secure employment.
The project, co-ordinated by OnSide, is particularly distinct as it will allow our Youth Zones to support young people who are not in education, employment or training, as well as young people deemed ‘at risk’ or ‘hard to reach’, as well as those from deprived backgrounds.
