Leicester Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Here is a direct link that gives a complete overview of the XVI Bars Project.

What we'll deliver:

  • On Site training to young people directly from professionals through work experience
  • Providing services to charities and lower income businesses
  • Regularly recruiting young people to our programme and run regular marketing campaigns for recruitment

Why it's a great idea:

One of the main issues we regularly come across, is young people who fall into the "creative" category, feeling misplaced and of little use to their community. Through XVI Bars, not only will they discover the opportunities available to them, they will train with people who are doing it every day and be in a position to earn revenue for themselves.

Steps to get it done:

  • Acquire the funding needed to deliver the programme for at least 12 months to start
  • Continue to create relationships with potential clients for our participants
  • Finalise the agreements between the professional staff required for the training
  • Secure a building with the appropriate space required (covid friendly)
  • Create a campaign to recruit our participants
  • Try to secure contracts with funding organisations that exceed 1 year
  • Begin our first orientations with our first group of participants in January 2021

Please see our sponsorship web page for more info.
