Prince’s Trust finale at Grimsby Institute
23 April 2014
The final presentation of the Prince’s Trust Team Programme will take place at Grimsby Institute on Tuesday 29 April at 1.30pm.
Youngsters aged 16-24 from North East Lincolnshire have been working over the last 12 weeks, under the team name ‘Burn to Learn’, to gain valuable teamwork, communication and social skills. Young people on the scheme have undertaken a residential week in Derbyshire, various community projects and a work experience placement over the course, whilst developing team building and CV writing skills.
As well as gaining valuable teamwork, communication and social skills, Prince’s Trust teams make a great contribution to the community, undertaking refurbishment projects for community centres and local parks, and working with other groups such as disabled children.
Lord Mayor of Grimsby Peggy Elliot, Prince’s Trust Team Leader Jamie Morris and Deputy Chief Fire Officer Chris Blacksell will be attending to hear the team share their experiences of the 12 week programme. The skills learnt will be valuable when the youngsters move into employment, further education or the voluntary sector.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has been working in partnership with The Prince’s Trust providing inspirational leadership and guidance to help young people in Grimsby since September 2011. The Trust’s Team Programme is run in partnership with the Fire Service, as well as other partners, across the country. This is the eighth team which has taken part in North East Lincolnshire.
The Grimsby Team Programme is also funded through a partnership with Grimsby Institute which provides support for young people to gain The Prince’s Trust Certificate in Employment, Teamwork & Community Skills.
