Youth Programme

The applications we focus on ensure that the projects are recruited from NEETS (vulnerable people who are not in education, employment and training, could monitor and mentor them and then account for a high success rate in finding routes to employment or return to education).

Current Projects

CLOSED - Community Music
Offbeat is a route to university and/or employment for NEET (not in education, employment or training)14-19yr olds from Tower Hamlets, Newham and Hackney who are disengaged from learning by increasing their confidence, skills, qualifications and employability through creative music training. Peer Mentors will support their progress during and after the project. www.cmsounds.com

Participants will have unrestricted access to an Information, Advice and Guidance counselor (IAG) to help them establish a career plan. The most at-risk and vulnerable participants will be supported and befriended by our Peer Mentors. http://www.peacockgym.com
