Our Together Project delivers a Life Skills and Personal Development programme that is tailored to the individual. It is open to every young person aged 15 - 24 wanting to progress with their next step.
After filling out our online sign-up form, you will be invited to an initial meeting with one of our youth workers. In this meeting, we will aim to get to know you a little better and together decide how we can support you with your next step.
Our programme includes 1:1 coaching and a variety of workshops and groups designed to help you understand yourself and build confidence, motivation and resilience.
Our 1:1 coaching underpins the programme. We want to offer you constant and consistent support so that you not only gain employment, education or training, but are able to sustain it too.
We understand that some young people may not want or need 1:1 support and, instead, may only need a one-off session to help them with applying for something new. For those young people, we offer a number of open-access workshops and groups, such as our Job Squad. This is a space where you can get support from one of our youth workers with anything job related, whether you are signed up to our programme or not.
The Together Project is built on the idea of partnership, and we could not do what we do without the involvement of our brilliant business partners. We always try to work collaboratively with employers, schools and other providers to ensure every young person gets the best support possible.We have a range of partners who are willing to go the extra mile to help young people and invest in their future. These partners support us by planning and running workshops to up-skill and inspire those on our programme, offering work experience, career mentoring, sharing job vacancies and assisting with mock interviews.
Our project has been designed with feedback from both local employers and young people to make sure it is relevant and engaging.
