The Personal Advisor service are working with a great charity called ‘We Mind the Gap’ to run a virtual programme to help young people in Conwy to discover and build a positive future for themselves.
The mission of ‘We Mind the Gap‘ is to give new opportunities in life and work for young people who deserve better. They fill the gaps in their lives with unashamed support, love and care. 70% of young people graduate from their programmes to paid employment, volunteering or education, which means they have moved from being ‘prisoners of circumstance’ to ‘pilots of their own lives.’
If you are aged 16 – 25 living in the County of Conwy, not currently in employment, education or training and are looking for support with ways to plan your next steps in life…this is the programme for you!
If you join the programme you will:
Take part in fun and interactive virtual (online) workshops
Be supported by your own mentor, who will listen to you and help you build your skills and make plans for your future
Have the opportunity to meet inspirational guest speakers on a variety of topics including MMA fighting and Astronomy!
Be given access to the Discovery Village – an interactive online portal
And most importantly, a fun and safe place to meet new people and enjoy yourself.
The benefits others have found from participating in the course include increased confidence and self-esteem, friendships, fun and new skills. They have also broadened their horizons through meeting inspiring people and role models. Take this opportunity and you too could become someone else’s inspiring person and role model!
But don’t take my word for it; watch this brief video to hear from others who have already experienced the We Discover programme. And if you would like to take part contact your Social Worker or PA TODAY!
