Aspire 2 B Great

This is an organisation set up by an ex-offender to mentor other young ex-offenders who usually have no qualifications and little prospect of getting a job BUT who had shown an interest in changing their lifestyle choices. Most are in gangs and involved in drugs and few have any fixed abode so employment is hugely difficult without a CV or experience.

The initiative was to create a business plan and prove how this could be run and developed. This gave them a type of CV to take forward to potential employees who had been sourced by this programme and were willing to invest in these young people. After 6 or 12 months an employment recommendation could be made based on punctuality, work ethic, stickability and general conduct and character. One to one help and guidance is given by qualified mentors who work with the young people.
