Working with us on the 12 week programme gives you a potential £40 a week training allowance! Or stay on Universal Credit if you are claiming a benefit.
The Thrive programme helps you works towards your goals at your pace with practical support to help you such as setting up a bank account, accessing Young Scot Cards and travel passes as well as supporting your health and wellbeing with gym memberships and whilst developing your CV through volunteering.
You will work one to one with a youth worker and then progress to group work to help you build your confidence and motivation whilst working on goals and your career plan. There are volunteering opportunities as part of the programme to help you build experience for your CV.
Previous participants have volunteered at a local food bank, started their gym memberships and have progressed into employment, further volunteering and training. One participant said:
"I really like coming to the sessions, I don't ever want to miss one, I really like coming here and making new friends as I didn't go out the house much once I left school as I didn't really feel like I had any friends. I feel like I've made friends here for the first time and it's really nice.
I'm looking forward to experiencing a lot more opportunities as it's something I didn't do when I was younger, I used to just come home from school and play video games."
"It was a really good learning experience over all for me, I've become more confident about things."
