You could benefit from these programmes that we run:
A monthly youth careers networking event for young people to explore careers, develop skills and make connections. Held at 3Space Brixton, we use a speed dating format so young people get one to one advice and insight from a range of professionals in a friendly relaxed and supportive environment. So far Youth Connect has covered: Entertainment & Food, Design & Media, Health & Sport, Finance & Technology and Marketing & Enterprise.
“I met a lot of knowledgeable people who have helped me form fresh ideas and helped me learn more” Jaden (June, Finance & Technology)
Led by professionals who are experts in their field, these short, interactive sessions for 10-20 young people, develop specific skills or knowledge relevant to future careers. Topics we have covered include: developing your personal brand, creating a social media campaign, planning an event and how to sell anything.
We have a bunch of opportunities going on all the time.
Our growing social media account is full of content created by young people. We asked them what they wanted and their answer was opportunities and tips. Short videos from young people cover topics like how to show your transferable skills and how to be self-assured in an interview.
