The Catalyst Project
Our New IFI Personal Youth Development Project - Catalyst which is specifically for young people aged 16 - 25 years who are not currently in employment or education. We want to provide the opportunity for personal and professional growth, fun and friendship and much more.
The scheme is funded by IFI and is a progressive incentive based programme.
What we do!
The programme encourages young people to get to know themselves better and embark on a journey of self development. With the opportunity to obtain qualifications and develop life skills whilst enjoying activities such a Surfing, Coasteering, Residentials and much more.
There are three levels to the programme with the aim being that over 2 years we can support a young person to develop their sense of self, obtain skills and qualifications and gain employment in a field where they have a keen level of interest with the added benefit of incentives to help them on their journey.
When is this happening?
We run two seperate programmes weekly. One on thursday from 12 noon - 4pm in Bangor and the other from 10am to 1 pm in Newtownards. Please register with us to get involved and start your journey with us.This Programme offers opportunities throughout the week for drop in, days out and 1:1 coaching to improve your development.
