Who’s it for? 

The Going The Extra Mile (GEM) project is for young people between the age of 15 and 25, who are not in education, employment or training. The project aims to engage with and support young people in Gloucestershire who are dealing with circumstances that are causing barriers to work and help you get closer towards education, training, volunteering or work.

What you can you expect?

The project offers 1-2-1 support to help you achieve your goals, no matter how big or small. A GEM navigator will help you plan for your future, taking small steps together to help you move forward. Together you will discuss your situation and come up with an agreed plan of support that is unique to you.

How to get involved?
