Brandon representing CYP at the Rome Conference Nov17

CYP was approached last year by Rinova, a specialist social enterprise running a pan-European project (called EP-DeM) focused on tackling youth social disengagement and employability. Rinova invited four local young people involved with CYP to discuss the strengths and limitations of existing employability programmes, and why many of these programmes are failing to engage and achieve adequate results for young people. Through this process, we have developed a more in-depth understanding of the issues facing local young people, enabling us to design a programme that we are confident will be effective for them.
