Project Fit For Life, Fit For Work

Area Youth Programmes

Description Eight times a year, groups of fifteen young adults (60% young women) spend six weeks - all day every day - looking at themselves, their life stories, their goals, their values. There is a lot of work done around sexuality and space is offered for the young people to articulate, perhaps for the first time, what it is they want for themselves - not what culture, peer pressure or the consumer society determines. After the participants graduate from the "Fit for Life" course, they move into work skills training: English, computer skills, driving lessons and many other work-related courses. They are then helped to find work. We have had, for the past three years, an 50% success rate in placing our grauates in either paid employment, stipended internships or tertiary studies with a bursary.
