Enabling everyone to imagine, fund & launch local projects that bring Worcestershire to life
We want to deliver a unique service to the communities of Worcestershire. We plan to purchase and transform a bus into an internet and adventure hub where young people can attend to connect to the internet and take part in adventurous activities. Downstairs they can search for jobs or training or ways to enhance their skills and also talk with advisors on how they can progress forward with their lives. Upstairs and alongside the bus, they can integrate themselves into adventurous activities including, rock climbing, zip wire and team challenges. The bus will be COVID safe with the use of industry standard cleaning equipment and work spaces. This project will also fund three part time staff members to deliver the project to communities. This project was originally inspired by WiFi buses, however this project focuses on a fixed point within communities, where young people can come and access the internet.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Connect young people to internet to which they engage with developing their skills, finding work or a form of education. Reduce the number of young people in internet poverty by giving them a safe place to go and connect. Reduce physical inactivity within Worcestershire, through activities around the hub. Improve employment and training opportunities. Positive impact on the community, through continuous engagement with schools, employers and young people. Build relationships and social connections with communities who have been isolated by the current pandemic. Connect more children and young people to adventurous activities, accessible to all across the county.
Steps to get it done:
This project is unique to the children and young people of Worcestershire and we hope to engage over 1000 young people over 6 months of delivery. Over our previous project this is the most vital, as it allows children and young people something different to experience, that they wouldn't have the opportunity to view in their own communities and also allows for them to gain access to a variety of support and resources.
