Empowering local people to develop and support projects that will enhance our shared communal spaces
The project looks to be a part of spearheading change in the younger generations mindset about the importance of a nutritious diet and the health implications of sugar overloaded soft drinks. There are two main elements to the project. 1. Educational workshops on health benefits of super-fruits 2. Training and Work Experience Students will leave the project having gained invaluable transferable skills cultivated by a fun and educational work placement.and equipped with knowledge on the health benefits of super-fruits which they may not have even heard of prior to partaking. Local schools and colleges will be approached and offered the educational workshops on super-fruits such as soursop (guanabana), sugar cane and avocado and work experience placements to students. They will also be trained on, key areas such as excellent levels of customer service lead by a qualified Customer Service Assessor, hygiene standards, and the importance of due diligence in the workplace.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Work experience is invaluable. No matter how many great qualifications someone a candidate's work experience remains a key factor in recruitment. Many young people haven't had much exposure to the working environment. Work experience that combines elements of education that can positively impact on your lifestyle is also rare. This a a great idea as this project does just that whilst also increasing student's employability. The sugar tax levy has impacted many drinks consumed largely by younger people. Alternatives for the drinks that no longer taste the same and also, that second the importance of the levy to reduce the consumption of artificial sugar can only impact the community in a positive way. This project looks to move the community away from unhealthy drinks and and towards much more healthier options such as freshly juiced super-fruits.
