An introduction to the YouNG Project.


YouNG is an initiative which gives people between the ages of 13 and 21 the chance to gain entrepreneurial skills and become equipped for their future career.

The project, which receives funding from Rushcliffe Borough Council,  provides opportunities to gain real-world work experience in their chosen industry, for placements ranging from one day to one year in length.

Placements give young people the opportunity to demonstrate and develop their skillset, while providing businesses with fresh talent equipped with new ideas.

The YouNG markets, meanwhile, allow young people to demonstrate their initiative by managing seeing the process of selling a product through from the initial idea to the point of sale.

Markets typically take place throughout the summer and at Christmas in a variety of locations across Rushcliffe, with young people selling their own handmade products and making money for themselves.

The bustling atmosphere at these markets is supported by live music and dance performances.

And, even during the Covid-19 pandemic, the project ensured that young people were able to gain an insight into the world of work through interactiver Q&As and virtual Work Experience sessions.
