The Brathay Apprentice Challenge team have organised to do their community project with Brighton & Hove Foyer.
The Foyer Federation is a not-for-profit organisation that helps to transform the circumstances of young people who have faced barriers in their lives.
They provide up to 10,000 16-25 year olds per year with mutually agreed, tailor-made programmes which give the young people access to housing, learning, personal development, training and employment opportunities in line with their needs and goals.
Brighton & Hove City Council’s team will be meeting up with young people who get support from the organisation to put on a table tennis tournament for them.
They will also give a talk about apprenticeships, provide advice and answer questions that the people from The Foyer may have.
The team are going to then organise a mentor service for any of the young people who are interested in becoming an apprentice.
This will enable the young person to have a contact, who has gone through the process of writing a CV, applying and starting an apprenticeship, which they can talk to and ask questions about the experience.
The apprentices decided that they should work together with The Foyer for their community project as they can help the young people who come down to the event, but will also be able to help them over the long run by being a point of contact for any who are interested in an apprenticeship.
It will also create a link between The Foyer and Brighton & Hove City Council apprentices, who will then be able to work together in the future.
