PATHWAYS

YUAF Pathways focuses on empowering young people to take a lead on shaping their lives and become aware of opportunities that will further their personal development and improve their well-being. The programme tailors the specific needs of each young person to explore their challenges to help them into opportunities within YUAF’s own projects as well as through external partners, which include companies in the creative industries and other organisations.   YUAF Pathways will provide progression and exit routes for young people to explore education and training opportunities, creativity and creative careers, as well as access to support for their physical and mental health.

As part of Pathways, YUAF Futures has been created to provide young people aged 16 - 19 from communities challenged by inequality (BAME, LGBTQIA, disabled teenagers and those living in poverty) with work experience placements within their chosen industry. We want to build a support system and self-belief in the youth community to drive their aspirations.

FUTURES

Our mission has expanded into building opportunities to help young people further develop their skills and employment opportunities. YUAF Futures provides young people, aged 16 - 19, from communities challenged by inequality (BAME, LGBTQIA, disabled teenagers and those living in poverty) with opportunities to help them progress into desirable workplaces or gain a qualification, skill or training that leads to improved possibilities. We also want to build a support system and self-belief in the youth community to drive their aspirations while at the same time increase diversity and inclusion in workplaces.

AWESOME

COACHING

We joined forces with one of our lead facilitators, MC Angel, to offer young people a stepping-stone to their greatness. At YUAF, we understand that not all young people are ready to take the next step into opportunities through Pathways and YUAF Futures. They may have low confidence, personal issues they are working through, or haven't yet realised how awesome they are due to their life experiences.

 

Over 6 sessions, an Awesome Coach will help young people, aged 14 – 19, tap into their strengths by learning how to expand upon their attributes, empowering them to further increase their self-belief and wellbeing. The confidence they gain will allow them to continue on the YUAF Pathways journey and seize opportunities to reach their goals and full potential.
