Youth Enterprise Academy

by | 21 March 2021 | Local Charity, Retford, Worksop

With this public health crisis that we are all facing together, thousands of young people across Nottinghamshire are feeling the pain that has come with it. Hundreds of them are being let go right at the start of their careers because businesses are having to make hard choices to reduce costs, and hundreds more young people are simply unable to even start their own career path, whatever that maybe.
Local charity Youth Enterprise and Employability Academy has already seen the damage this pandemic has done to young people’s hopes and dreams, and fear it is only going to get worse as more young people are preparing to leave school in few months, having missed exams and facing the prospect of a reduction in job prospects.
It is without doubt that youth unemployment is continuing to sky-rocket during this pandemic. But, on the brighter side, the charity have spoken to young people from across Nottinghamshire who are finding their very own feet, so to speak. They are taking on new opportunities to succeed and thrive by beginning an entrepreneurial journey. This pandemic is leading more youngsters down the entrepreneurial route than ever before. While this is remarkable, our young people cannot do it totally alone.
Youth Enterprise and Employability Academy are working to create a supportive environment to promote their strengths, abilities, and aid them with achieving their entrepreneurial ambition. They also support those that are about to start their journey into the world of work by ensuring that when they do leave education they are prepared for the challenges that come their way.
Whilst there is light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to this pandemic, the damage will remain for many years and now more than ever this small Nottinghamshire-based charity is feeling young people’s pain too.
They are asking you to enable them to continue providing support and opportunities for young people by fundraising for them. The money you raise really does help change the lives of young people in Nottinghamshire. You can also make donations via www.paypal.com/gb/fundraiser/charity/3713988.
