Empowering Enterprise

Empowering Enterprise

 

This exciting project aimed to help 18-24 year olds who were NEET (not in Education, Employment or Training) and develop their employability and life skills, giving them the confidence to move onto a positive outcome.

Eat That Frog CIC (along with other partners) worked with some of Devon’s most socially-excluded young people, with the aim to use 1:1 support and group activities to engage and progress them on a positive path. Participants were given a mentor to support them with anything they needed to help them move forward, including information, advice and guidance, sign-posting to relevant support services, confidence building, goal-setting, achieving their potential and assistance towards finding employment.

 

Petroc participants have taken part in a wide range of activities all of which have been guided and chosen by the learners themselves. They include: days out on Dartmoor, team building at Ashcombe, escape rooms and a regular film club. These group activities fit alongside the 1:1 mentoring all participants receive, helping to build confidence, social skills and a group ethos. Our Empowering Enterprise young people have gone on to achieve some great outcomes including entering the workplace.

This project is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund.
