CYPFS builds confidence for unemployed youth
Congratulations to Mark Boonstra, Manger of Impact Communities and his team for the successful delivery of the CYPFS program to unemployed youth within their Troublesmiths program. Troublesmiths is aimed at 15 – 24 yr olds who are disengaged from education and at risk of long- term unemployment.
The Institute for the Study of Social Change Director Professor Richard Eccleston stated “The Institute is proud to support a social impact initiative such as Troublesmiths, showed that of the 146 participants, 121 were “retained for a satisfactory period of attendance”.
“The evaluation highlighted the ‘Coaching Young People for Success’ framework allowed participants to identify strengths and interests and to be supported by the coaches in achieving their goals. “Young people felt that someone was taking an interest in them as a person, not just a program outcome and this engendered personal growth.
