PROJECT HARD GRAFT HAVERING

YOUTH UNITY CIC By YOUTH UNITY CIC

We are crowdfunding for temporary demountable structures (stage & marquee) so we can offer young people training for the events and industrial scaffolding industries.

Hornchurch Delivery stage

pledged of £4,878

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The project will bring a group of ten young people aged 16 to 24 from disadvantaged backgrounds who live in Havering who are not in employment, education or training to gain new skills, make new friends and build confidence. By learning how to build and dismantle temporary demountable structures (TDS) not only will they improve employability but they will develop soft skills. This project will also be recorded and filmed to serve as a short documentary, mapping the journeys, real-life challenges and fears of the young people involved. The young people will also get the opportunity to learn aspects of film making, editing and equipment set up. 

What we'll deliver:

  • employment
  • training
  • local events

Why it's a great idea:

The opportunity is specifically aimed at young people aged 16-24 in Havering because these are key life stages of a young person seeking employment, or further education. The aims of the project will help to keep young people off the streets and contribute to reducing serious youth violence. We believe that by offering young people an alternative to engaging in crime, we can encourage young people to gain work experience/ employment once all training has been completed. The process of restoring these units is ultimately, an opportunity for them to learn valuable skills such as: Life skills, Teamwork, Employability, Finance and business management, Confidence Accreditation.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the Stages

We will be offering young people the opportunity to get involved in not only the production of responsible content but we also work to cover the full makings of a short film or documentary. This will enable many to learn and develop new skills with the possibility of going on to further training. Our team have over the years delivered film workshops in schools, colleges and pupil referral units. Teaching young people of all ages the importance of using social media responsibly. We also run more specific intervention workshops aimed at young people at risk.  These workshops are powerful and help to engage hard to reach cohorts.
