S.T.A.R.S (social enterprise)

We need your help to support young people!

If you would like to sponsor and support these initiatives please get in touch. We have a waiting list of young people living in our local community who would greatly benefit from attending our workshops, training and mentoring schemes.

We believe that young people should be given the chance to fulfil their potential and achieve success, regardless of their social and family background. This is why we are working with local businesses and individual sponsors to ensure as many young people as possible can access our confidence-building services. We offer free places on all our workshops and outdoor activities, provide long term mentoring to students aged 14 – 18 in collaboration with local schools (at no cost to the individual) and organise training courses to develop the leadership, social and practical skills of young people. 

 

By acting as role models, critical friends and cheerleaders to these promising young people, we are witnessing some fantastic results. 

CASE STUDY 1:

 

Emma* is 1 of 6 children and her mum, a single parent, has 2 jobs.  As a result, Emma collects her younger siblings from school and looks after them until the evening, cooking their dinner and doing the household chores, etc. 

 

She was a shy girl, with low self-esteem and had no real aspiration or direction in her life. We were able to mentor and support her through year 11, increase her confidence, provide her with career advice and show her all the different post-16 options that were available to her. 

 

As a result, she developed her soft skills, became motivated about her studies, is excited about her future and is now off to college to study a course which she thought “people like her didn’t do”! 

 

Help us to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
