Future First and Youth Futures Foundation shine a spotlight on young people

Young people deserve to have their voices heard and never more so than now as they bear the brunt of a bleak labour market and an uncertain future. We are supporting Youth Futures Foundation to shine a spotlight on the challenges faced by young people looking for a job in these difficult times.

If you are aged between 16 to 24 years old and happy to speak about your experience of looking for a job, we’d love your support. Volunteers will be asked to take part in an interview with a journalist from a local television or radio station or a newspaper. All volunteers will be fully supported and prepared to ensure you feel comfortable and have a positive experience talking to the media. You do not have to be experts on youth employment, only to be content to share your experience of making the transition into work.

If you are happy to share some of the difficulties you are facing, or perhaps have gone on to overcome, then please get in touch with Jayne at jayne.phenton@youthfuturesfoundation.org. This is an opportunity for your voice to be heard by a range of decision makers and key representatives.
