It’s a privilege to work with young people and to see their progression as they develop new skills, confidence and prepare for adult life. Here are a few examples of the positive outcomes we have helped young people achieve through our projects:
Aged 10, Jasmine was one of the youngest winners of our Thetford Youth Enterprise Challenge 2016/17
Jasmine entered our competition to design and sell an anti-bullying t-shirt after being encouraged by her Dad. Jasmine submitted a design featuring a strong and powerful anti-bullying message. Her design made such an impact on our judging panel that she was selected as one of our four competition winners!

Bilge was the oldest winner of our Thetford Youth Enterprise Challenge 2016/17. She has lived in England for 3 years and was born in Turkey. During this short time she has learnt to speak English with the support of Catch 22’s study programme and hopes to develop a career in hair dressing.
Bilge took part in our enterprise workshops in Thetford and attended a range of events to promote and sell anti-bullying t-shirts, which she and other young people designed.
Aidan is a creative and energetic 10 year old who lives in Brandon. He was looking for something different to do and got involved in our Thetford Youth Enterprise Challenge 2016/17, after attending our anti-bullying artwork exhibition in January with his mum and younger sister.
Although he didn’t enter our competition to design and sell an anti-bullying t-shirt, Aidan became very involved in the project and attended our enterprise workshops and supported our competition winners to promote and sell their t-shirts.
