The Enterprise Journey 31 Jul 2017
Young Enterprise is the UK's leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills. We work across England and Wales and we have 13 separate Business Units, one of which covers the North West region. Following on from last years successful project (funded by the Cheshire Community Foundation), we are seeking a grant to deliver 7 x half day Launch Pad workshops and 7 x Company Programme's to 7 deprived schools in the Cheshire/Warrington area. Spread over an academic year our Company Programme is an exciting enterprise journey giving young people the opportunity to develop a real business whilst learning key employability and life skills. Following feedback from teachers during last years project, we would like to deliver an additional one day workshop (Launch Pad) alongside Company Programme to the targeted schools, ensuring students benefit from the extra support. Launch Pad is a perfect introduction to business and acts as a stepping stone towards the Company Programme. We find that Launch Pad is particularly helpful to disadvantaged young people and those who could benefit from additional support to move from generating an idea to launching their product in the marketplace.

This proposal is to help build the capacity of NCB Northern Ireland to more effectively involve children and young people in its own work and therefore to also help strengthen the voice of children and young people in Northern Ireland. At the core of the project is the recruitment of a specialist 'Participation Officer', for 18 months, with a programme of work divided into three related strands that include giving visibility to refugee, asylum-seeking and migrant children, increasing the influence young residents have in how Children's Homes are run and embedding the involvement of young people in NI in the work of NCB NI.
