Our impact

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:

Building confidence and business skills – Jasmine

Building confidence and business skills – Jasmine

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!

Developing employability skills – Bilge

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.

Engaging creative minds – Aidan

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.

"Being part of this project has made me more confident to share my ideas. It has also shown to lots of people what I am capable of."

– Young person, aged 10

"‘I feel more confident because we’ve done lots of selling and met many people."

– Young person, aged 18

"I would recommend this project to other people because it lets you speak up. It makes people listen to the things you want to say."

– Young person, aged 10

"I have seen my daughter grow in confidence over the weeks. It is really fabulous how, by attending each workshop her knowledge of business skills had developed. It has shown how beneficial each week has been by her enthusiasm to attend. A very wonderful experience for a young person to get her ready with the skills needed to start her working life!"

– Sarah Dawes, parent
