Young people currently unemployed or out of education are being invited to sign up for two weeks worth of excitement and adventure in Slough this month.

The 'team' programme is run by the charity Adviza under the auspices of the Prince's Trust, offering young people aged 16 to 25 a chance to meet new people, learn new skills, improve confidence and boost their job or education prospects.

They can take on their own group community project designed to make a positive difference to Slough, experience an action packed residential trip, even complete two weeks’ work experience in something they have a particular interest in.

The programme is held in Slough three times a year.

As part of the course, the young people will also spend some time developing their interview and CV writing skills ready to take the next step with work or education. The programme is free and will not affect a young person’s ability to claim Jobseeker’s Allowance.

Three out of four young people who have done the programme have gone on to work or college within three months of completing the programme.

Lee Teideman, Head of Projects with Adviza said: “We are really pleased to be offering The Prince’s Trust Team programme in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and would like to reach out to any young person who finds themselves out of work and education to come along and see what Team is all about. This really could be a life-changing opportunity.”

The next programme begins in Slough on Monday, January 20, running until Friday, April 10 and interested participants can sign up now.
