Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
For young people to have the confidence to step into the world and thrive. For them to not be held back by their background and to have equal access to opportunities as their peers that have support networks, educational attainment and acceptance from society. In addition to increased access to opportunities, they will develop their skills on an interpersonal level and a professional level.
It's all part of making a better world.
To improve equality of access to opportunities for marginalised young people. To provide them with a support network through mentor schemes & peer to peer education and offer them a route into training or employment that matches their interests, skills and passions. There would also be business mentoring for young people who have the passion to create their own business through a skill or service.
This is really going to help people.
Young people aged 16-30 who are marginalised by society either for their socio-economic background, race, sexuality, gender, religion, educational attainment or lack of support networks. This age range captures school leavers who might not have the grades to go to college or university as well as young adults who are prone to unemployment based on their circumstances.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increased confidence and skills in marginalised young people
Increase in youth employment
Local government support for the project leading to a commitment to reinvest in under resourced communities
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
By conducting a base line survey at the start of the protect and a follow up survey to see whether Outcome 1 has been achieved. To lobby and work in partnership with local and national government to gauge Outcome 2 and 3. Listening to the beneficiaries at the recruitment and initial stages of the project will help us understand their circumstances and what sort of impact a lack of opportunities has had on
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
