Why is it important to work with young people and your community?

By taking part in meaningful encounters with employers, people within your communities have a better understanding of the world of work in their local area. It helps to provide them with information on the industries and careers available to them and can set the expectations of what a job will entail and what qualities employers are looking for. For those who have limited career history or long term unemployment, it provides them with the vital experience needed to take their next steps up the job ladder. For young people, it helps to identify the career path they may or may not want to take and helps them see how the work they do in education can link to their future choices. Not only this, but for all involved it helps to build the much sought after ‘soft skills’ such as communication, team work and organisation. Working together can help to ensure a stronger and more productive workforce of the future.
