Southend YMCAs Kick Start project is aimed at young people aged 14 to 16, who are not in education, employment or training or are at risk of disengaging from education.
The project runs over a 10 week period, on Monday & Thursday from 10.00 to 15.00.
The young people will gain Level 1 qualifications, which are offered through two different mediums; cooking (Simply Delicious) and live radio (Sound Waves) which will include a work taster session. All students will also gain a First Aid in the Workplace qualification.
In addition there is an opportunity to participate in teambuilding events, such as group meals, scavenger hunts and animal workshops and podcast creation.
Each course ends with a celebration event to recognize the achievements of students.
