Situation

Our YP come from low income, disadvantaged homes & have failed in school academically & socially. This leads to a lack of self-esteem/confidence and emotional problems which prevent them from moving on in life & securing employment. Its a vicious cycle, where YP don't achieve, resulting in a lack of confidence in their abilities & then less motivation to try once again. Our users are unable to take the skills learnt at Teen Action and secure employment due to this blockage

Solution

CommuniSkills will tackle the underlying reasons behind YP lack of confidence and low motivation as well as weak chances in employment, by challenging barriers to employment. We will empower them with the all important soft skills which are highly valued by employers. We'll also tackle issues such as attitude, communication skills, social/emotional development and team working. We will give YP the tools and practice needed to break free & gain employment.
