Johnny's Story

Johnny first heard about the Princes Trust programme from a promotional leaflet he saw, he wanted help in getting ready for the world of work, he felt this programme would help him on a one to one level that he had not previously received at school.

Johnny’s team are planning to paint a mural in Phoenix house, a hall that is used by many local community groups and would be appreciated by a whole range of young people and adults from all backgrounds. They are holding a number of fundraising activities including a sponsored 3-legged walk and cake sale to raise funds for the project. 

 

So far Johnny would say he has enjoyed everything but the highlight has been meeting new people and coming out of his shell, as someone who is quiet in nature he now has far more confidence and looks forward to coming to see the team every day.

For Johnny, confidence is the one of the best things he has gained from the programme so far as he is now able to lead a team, feels more capable in his abilities and has learned new skills he never knew he had. 

His next steps are finding a job and thanks to the Princes Trust programme he now feels more confident in interviews, he is looking forward to work experience and knows he will get the help he needs from his team leaders.
