Situation

• There are many young people out there who have ideas but do not have the support or knowledge to action these ideas, particularly in rural areas where there are less opportunities to get involved in different activities/organisations. • Youth unemployment figures are continuing to rise and the number of young people aged 16-24 currently unemployed is nearly 1 million. • Young people are often negatively portrayed by the media.

Solution

By providing young people with the tools, resources and support needed to turn their ideas into reality, we will support young people to make a difference to their communities and themselves. As an online platform, Junction49 offers young people easy access to support whenever they need it. Junction49 provides the opportunity for young people to communicate and share their experiences with others, whilst also gaining valuable skills such as project management, financial management and more.
