An online employability programme for young people in the Thames Valley has been launched this week.
Starting today (Monday), people aged 16 to 25 will be able to take part in the five-day employability skills programme, being run by the charity Adviza.
The programme, called Reach Up, will coach young people employability and work skills through a series of Zoom workshops taking place between 10.30am and 1.30pm, which will be delivered by UK Youth, Adviza, Coca-Cola European Partners and the Healthy Living Centre in Aylesbury.
Participants will also have the opportunity to network during the programme.
At the end, participants will receive a £50 shopping voucher and a £100 bursary.
Adviza’s Lee Teideman, project manager, said: “Reach Up is a short programme that can have long-lasting impact.
“It provides young people—especially those not currently in work or education—with an opportunity to engage with organisations that can inspire their next step in education, employment and training.
“It can be a stepping stone to a better career or future.”
If you would like to participate in the programme or refer a young person, email firstname.lastname@example.org
