Young people in Staffordshire are being given the chance to take part in a 12-week personal development course alongside Staffordshire Fire and Rescue.
They get to try so many new things they’d never get to do and it completely changes their lives.
The Prince’s Trust scheme’s calling on 16 to 25-year-olds – who are out of work or education – to become members of team programmes across the county – in Tamworth, Stafford and Cannock.
Cannock team leader Sian Osborne believes the programme is great to be a part of, she said: “It’s clear to see how far the students come in 12 short weeks.
“They get to try so many new things they’d never get to do and it completely changes their lives – whether that sees them re-entering education, employment or even become more comfortable within themselves.”
Chief Fire Officer Becci Bryant said: “Safer Communities Community Interest Company (CIC) continues to help young people develop the confidence and skills they need to move into work, education or training.
“The team programme gives unemployed young people the chance to gain qualifications, practical skills and work experience, whilst delivering community projects and group challenges.”
