We are proud to celebrate the success of the Bright Futures Project which was an innovative one year work experience programme offering placements for young people aged 14 – 18 years which ran for 4 years from 2009 – 2014.
Nearly 300 young people benefited from the programme with opportunities to develop work-ready skills and experience and explore career aspirations through working at prestigious organisations.
Feedback from young people on the programme has shown they developed a range of personal skills and attributes including more confidence, better communication skills, team working, resilience and are more aspirational towards a desired career or higher education. The long term relationships that were built have proved invaluable for some young people who have been successful in starting their career in the very same organisation they did their placement.
We are very grateful to our business supporters and schools and colleges who have supported the programme and made a huge difference to young people and the community and look forward to working with you again sometime in the future.
We would like to share with you some of the success stories in the link below:
