I had recently left sixth form, and I was struggling to find a job or an apprenticeship. My NEET support worker, Jackie, suggested CXK’s Prince’s Trust Team Programme to me.
I feel I have really benefitted from the programme, before I joined the programme, I wasn’t very confident, I would have never dreamed of speaking to a large group of people. My interpersonal skills have also improved, I’ve learnt to work and communicate as a group, and understand other people’s ideas and point of view.
Now that I have completed the programme, I plan to volunteer for 6 months until I turn 18. I really want to do a job which involves helping other people, so I’m aiming to find a part-time job alongside volunteering.
