A programme to take young people from West Sussex at risk of social exclusion, to help them intergrate into society and prepare them for the work place through five key stages.
The participants are assessed and tracked throughout the programme to moniter the impact of our work with them. The aim is to take the young person from being a NEET [not in employment, education or training] to an EET [in employment, education or training].
After Stage 1 participation is entirely voluntary and possibly lead, after Stage 5, to a fully funded placement at Lodge Hill, which includes being enrolled at the YMCA George Williams College in London on an NVQ Level 3 programme for Youth work and informal education.
Lodge Hill is proud to have run this programme since its inception in 1999. Over 2000 young people have benefitted and for our work to be recognised through an award from the Howard League.
