Team 192 are heading into their last 2 weeks of The Prince's Trust programme and I couldn’t be more proud of their development. This is my first Prince's Trust Team here at Young Gloucestershire having come from a background of working with a younger age group.
The Prince's Trust Team is an accredited 12 week programme for young people aged 16 to 25 who are not in education, employment or training. The 12 weeks are made up of activities and support and includes a week on residential, delivering a social action project locally, writing a CV, learning interview skills and techniques, gaining an employability qualification and experiencing work placement for 2 weeks.
The team have achieved some brilliant things so far and completing their community project is probably one of the biggest. After a lot of discussion in the group and the viewing of a couple potential projects, they decided together that they wanted to make a difference at the Secret Garden Nursery for preschool children. They did a sponsored cycle and row and a bag pack in the local supermarket. This raised over £250.
The team are now embarking on their final 2 weeks. They have shown great progression over the past 10 weeks and I am confident they will come through with flying colours.
