Epping Forest Youth Employment Strategy has been chosen to compete in the Aviva Community Fund vote for the opportunity to be awarded funding up to £5,000 for their activities supporting young people on their journey into the World of Work.
Youth Employment Strategy Partnership (known as the YES Partnership) has been designed to encourage students, schools and youth organisations, local and national government and businesses to provide motivation, information and assistance for young people seeking employment.
Following a recent Motivation Conference, an employer said: " I looked at their faces: success was written all over them".
The YES Partnership is going from strength to strength with initiatives taking place across the Epping Forest District area including a Festive Youth Market, Breakfast for Business, Motivation Conferences and World of Work ("WOW)" Conferences involving all six Epping Forest District secondary schools.
We held a successful "Investors in Youth People Awards" last year and are currently working on our second event recognising Epping Forest young people and businesses.
All you need to do to vote is register on the Aviva Community Fund website and every individual email address gets 10 votes, which you can spread across the projects or give all your 10 votes to YES!
Please do not delay as the deadline for votes is 30th May. Click on the link below to vote NOW:
We would like to thank everyone who has already voted for us and would appreciate if you could let others know to help spread the word. Thanks.
