The 16-24 Work Club gives personalised help, advice, guidance and encouragement to help young people find and keep the job they really want. Our advisors help people build a CV, search for jobs and assist participants in completing high quality applications.
In a relaxed, friendly, and purposeful environment, our goals are to:
• To motivate and encourage young people, to learn, develop life skills, build self-esteem and confidence
• To provide information, advice and guidance about qualifications and careers
• To encourage clients to take advantage of opportunities for employment, further education, volunteering or training.
• To create a vision for a positive future.
We totally reject the idea that people need to be bullied or pressured into work, and so will not accept a referral where receipt of benefits is dependent on attending the 16-24 Work Club.
The 16-24 Work Club, was intiated in 2012 through a direct request from Job Centre Plus to Kingsbridge Youth For Christ (Formerly Spiritulized YFC) a local charity that is passionate about making a real difference to young people in Kingsbridge and the surrounding area. Our innovative projects and programmes are designed around meeting real local need. You can find out more about our work with young people aged, 11-24 at the Kingsbridge Youth For Christ website.
We are hugely grateful to Gareth Sorsby at Exeter YMCA for his expertise in establishing the Work Club in Kingsbridge.
