Young Urged to Join Programme
Young people in Shropshire are being urged to join an exciting 12 week programme that could help 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 next month in Telford.
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 Jake Bate-Harris said: “The Prince’s Trust programme is a great way for youngsters to experience new activities and develop greater self awareness. You’ll have the opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills and you’ll also get assistance with travel costs and benefits won’t be affected.”
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 November 28. For more information or to suggest a project, challenge or a young person to join the programme please ring Jake on 07535134884 or email BateHarrisJ@hotmail.co.uk
