    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    We want to provide an opportunity for local disadvantaged children and young people (CYP) to develop a range of skills and gain experience in a third sector organisation. Along Came Kirsty CIC want to work with CYP who struggle to stay engaged at school, have been unemployed since leaving school and who do not have the necessary skills required to successfully contribute to the work force e.g. lack of understanding of jobs on offer, limited understanding of expected.

    We will improve the employment potential of disadvantaged CYP and bring great awareness to this group of social enterprise and its benefits to the community they live in. We believe we are in a unique situation to carry out this project, given the skill set of our team of consultants, our proven track record working with volunteers, our community interest company. Our project Manager has years of experience working with CYP in schools and the community.

    The initial development work such as the branding, marketing and producing materials for the training with student volunteers will take 8 weeks. We will start the work a pilot group of young champions in April and we will see results and get their feedback by the end of April 2016. This will then help us shape the next stage of the project with our first group of champions and their student volunteer mentors.

    Interactive white board £2000
