Recipient Org: Description Young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) risk a bleak economic future with negative health implications. In West Sussex over 1000 young people are NEET and this number is on the rise. The Juno Project was created in 2012 to support women who wanted to work for themselves. In 2016, we piloted ‘This Is Me’ (TIM) , a project that supports disengaged and marginalised girls (aged 14-16) in West Sussex who are at risk of becoming NEET. We help them take control over their lives, developing self-esteem and confidence alongside employability and enterprise skills. The aim of the project is to support disadvantaged young people to overcome personal barriers and challenges, go to college or work, and achieve their personal goals. Activities: TIM delivers 3 modules, each 8 weeks long, delivered across the school year: Module 1 explores the relationship we have with ourselves Module 2 examines the relationship we have with other people Module 3 focuses on developing enterprise and employability skills. Each module consists of group work, 1-2-1 sessions with a highly-experienced and fully-trained facilitator, opportunities to interact with a variety of external speakers and volunteers, reflective and creative thinking tasks, and a range of assorted additional resources and tools. Mentoring: At the end of module 3 we pair each girl with a mentor. Mentors are business women from the local community, who, like our young people, have experienced their own challenges life - be it personal, school or career. Mentors work with the girls on an individual basis for two years; helping the girls to transition from school to college or training and then on to work. The mentor will open her networks, invite her mentee to relevant events and learning opportunities, and support her on a woman-to-woman basis as necessary.
