Herts Youth Futures
The Herts Youth Futures project provides one-to-one mentoring support for individuals facing barriers to education, training and/or employment. This BBO (Building Better Opportunities) project is in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council and is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund whom have invested £1.1 million to aid young people into supported and sustained work and education.
Additionally, they run a Skype hangout every Friday for young people to meet and make friends.
What's different about this project?
The unique aspects of this project are that once referred, individuals will be allocated a Youth Mentor who will tailor their support solely based on the individuals' needs. Additionally, this support is based around flexibility, being dependent on individuals' circumstances and with the vision of long-term advice and guidance. With numerous partner organisations across the county, this is an extremely far-reaching project. It utilises a diverse range of expertise and therefore aims to ensure the needs of all individuals can be met in some form.
Hertfordshire Mind Network as a leading mental health services provider can thus offer tailored and focused support, contributing to the network of specialised mentoring delivered by Herts Youth Futures.
