The programme is part of the government’s Positive for Youth strategy, announced in December 2011 and is funded by the Department for Education.
What will the project achieve?
The programme runs for fifteen months and has three key components:
To build the capacity of businesses and the youth sector to work better together by highlighting best practice, running interactive webinars and producing a 'how to' guide for voluntary organisations. This also includes piloting a new brokerage model called Futures Club in Plymouth.
To link potential partners online and face-to-face at Regional Events across England.
