Tackling youth unemployment – free workshop

Do something practical about youth unemployment - CUF workshop, 16th May.

A great opportunity on Wednesday 16th May 10.30am – 3.30pm for faith-based groups to upskill & swap ideas on tackling youth unemployment.

The venue is Hinde Street Methodist Church, 19 Thayer Street, London W1U 2QJ.

It’s being run by the Church Urban Fund and Frontier Youth Trust (both Christian-based, but the workshop and CUF grants are open to all faith-based organisations). The blurb says

. . a workshop to inspire and equip churches and faith-based groups to support young people struggling with unemployment.

There will be a chance to listen and ask questions with a group of experienced practitioners who are involved in a wide range of projects tackling youth unemployment, including personal development programmes, job clubs and social enterprises.

The workshop is aimed at people who want to do something practical to respond to youth unemployment in their local area, either starting up a new project or building on existing work.

Workshops will include

  • Mentoring young unemployed people
  • Setting up a Job Club
  • Personal development and life skills
