Young Urged to Join Programme
Young people in Sandwell are being urged to join an exciting 12 week programme that could help then uncover hidden talents and change their lives for the better.
The Prince’s Trust programme, which is delivered by City of Wolverhampton College, is now on the hunt for new members for their next course, which kicks off this March in Smethwick.
The programme helps 16 to 25-year-olds back into jobs, education or training, to realise their potential and to achieve their goals and dreams. It includes a one week residential week away with activities such as climbing, abseiling and raft building, worthwhile community projects and fundraising activities.
Students will also spend two weeks on work experience and pick up a number of certificates, including those in First Aid, Food Hygiene and Health and Safety.
Team Leader Jo Parke said: “The Prince’s Trust programme is a great way for youngsters to make new friends, experience new activities and develop greater self awareness.
“It won’t cost you anything and you will still receive your benefits, plus you might qualify for a bus pass.”
Organisers are also appealing for anyone who knows of any potential projects, such as renovating a community centre or creating a play area, that would be challenging and achievable for a team to complete within two weeks to get in contact.
The next programme starts on Monday 6th March 2017 in Smethwick. For more information or to suggest a project, challenge or a young person to join the programme please ring Jo on 07771388596, Parveen on 07909550328.
