Young People into Employment Programme

Young People into Employment Programme

South Yorkshire Community Foundation is administering the Young People into Employment Programme.

The fund is particularly keen to support projects where the beneficiaries are unemployed 16-25 year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds or communities.

This programme aims to support disadvantaged young people from South Yorkshire back into education or into employment enabling them to make lasting change in their lives.

Priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in South Yorkshire that have a clear understanding of the needs of young people.

The funding will award grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to support community groups running projects that:

  • Increase work ready skills of young people
  • Offer work placement opportunities
  • Support young people into education or employment
  • Offer apprenticeships for young people
  • Positive engagement activities aimed at pre work and work ready skills reducing barriers to employment for young people with diverse needs
  • Provide individual and peer support to young people to identify and negotiate pathways into enterprising activities and employment

Applications must be submitted, to reach this office by 5pm Monday 1st July 2013. Applicants will be informed if they have reached the next stage Part B of the application process and decisions will be made in August. Unsuccessful applications may also be considered as part of our Small Grant Fund (if eligible) and may be awarded a grant from an alternative fund.
