‘Are you 16-25 and want to boost your confidence? If you join Team, you’re in for a treat.
Working with up to 14 other young people over 12 weeks, you’ll kick start with a residential trip to get to know everyone a bit better.
Later down the line, you’ll also make a difference in your community by taking on your own project. From regenerating a garden to creating a short film to inspire people to make a change, you’ll do everything from planning, fundraising and rolling up your sleeves to get the job done.
In addition to this, we’ll help you with your CV and interview skills to help you get ahead. Gaining a nationally-recognised qualification along the way, you can put your new talents to the test in a two-week work experience placement.
It sounds like a long time, but it flies by. You won’t believe it’s you sharing your journey at the final presentation. Everything is geared towards giving you the best chance to move into work, education or training.’
