What's involved?

We offer three levels of engagement:

Level 1: Spark

A short half-day engagement or ‘Spark Event’ where young people can test out an activity of their choice, ranging from sports and outdoor activities, to arts & crafts, taster courses, or work experience. The aim of the Spark Event is to introduce young people to something new, get them out of their comfort zone and find their spark. 

Level 2: Explore

A 3-day engagement where young people can take part in a camp, challenge, short work placement; undertake a social action project, or receive training & business support​. Through these engagements they are given the opportunity to build confidence, meet new people and challenge themselves as well as developing crucial skills such as creative thinking, problem solving and team work.

Level 3: Expand

A three-month engagement with a dedicated Empowerment Coach where young people will develop the skills they need for employment through delivering a Social Action Project. Here, they will work in teams to start their very social action project. We will provide CV-enhancing skills-based workshops in branding, marketing, leadership, and much more. As well as offering the space and support to develop your  ideas and actually start a business, we work with young people to help them find personalised work placements, volunteer roles, employment or further training. We have strong relationships with local employers and training providers, and have funding to support any training needs.
