The Pathway to Success project brings together a range of Prince’s Trust programmes to provide support to 16-24 year olds who are not in employment, education or training and need intensive and sustained help to overcome the barriers that prevent them moving into employment.
The project helps young people with intensive personal development, coaching and mentoring, employability and job-related training. The project focuses particularly on young people who are furthest from the labour market, and one-to-one support is provided. On completion of the support, young people have the opportunity to access a trained volunteer mentor for up to six months. Mentors provide additional support to project participants through regular meetings to help to identify and achieve goals and provide guidance on employability and job search issues, for example, support with CV writing.
The project is delivered by The Prince’s Trust
Key Outputs / Results
