Catalyst Youth Project
Our New IFI Personal Youth Development Project-Catalyst which is specifically for young people 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.
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 as 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.

"I have really enjoyed the trips and making a fab new group of friends! It has helped give me a lot of confidence and prepared me for the job I got as a special needs teaching assistant."
"I am glad that I joined Catalyst as when I started I was in a dark place due to mental health and my actual health but I have overcome a lot of things I never thought I would. I am proud to say I am still learning and building on myself and thankful for the programme and the friendships I have made."
"With Catalyst, I have created a lot of strong relationships with the other people who attend each week. I have been given a range of opportunities to be involved in different courses that gave me the ability to achieve a variety of certificates. Being with Catalyst has given me a chance to work on myself in an environment which is understanding and trusting."
