Young people are our future. We exist to provide young people with the life skills necessary to avoid poverty and achieve their purpose.
The skills gap is a critical chasm between the skills possessed and the skills required for a competent workforce. 40% of job vacancies across the UK exist due to a shortage of soft skills. Many businesses are reluctant to invest in young people’s development of these soft skills because they believe it is the role of the education system. The absence of a soft skill focus leaves many individuals who come from deprived and adverse backgrounds in danger of falling into poverty (widening the rich/poor divide).
