In their continued bid to provide a wraparound service to support young people on their career pathways, the JRF Team were delighted to be awarded funding by the LHC Community Benefit Fund, in association with Locality.

The grant is to support JRF’s ‘Positive Futures’ project working with 16 – 25-year-olds to equip them with the information, resources, skills, and self-belief they need to enter the world of work, and to understand and manage their money, to plan for their future financial independence.

To a backdrop of multi-sports the young participants will attend a series of Life Coaching workshops involving practical money management sessions, healthy meals on a budget, as well as techniques to enhance their physical and mental health, self-confidence, and resilience.

The Career Coaching workshops will involve using CVs and LinkedIn to showcase skills, advice on how to create a positive impression, information about self-employment or starting a business, and preparing for interviews.

Martene Carroll, Business Development Manager said; “The overall message we hope to convey to our participants through the Positive Futures project, is for them to understand the importance of aiming high in their everyday lives, and for them to recognize how being proactive can help them to reach their future goals.”

If you are between 16 – 25-years of age and wish to participate on this programme please email martene@jasonrobertsfoundation.org
