Success for CYT
Construction Youth Trust makes a real difference to young people's lives by helping them remove barriers they face in getting into construction.
Their mission is to enable young people who have faced difficulties in their lives or come from disadvantaged communities to access training and employment in the construction sector. We make effective links between communities and employers and get them to understand each other better to enable real outcomes.
Construction Youth Trust met with Mike Overton from Area Sq. who contacted us through the Considerate Constructers Scheme. Area Sq. were keen to help the Trust with our programmes which help young people into the industry through awareness raising and accredited construction courses.
Working in Southwark where our exciting 'pop up' training facility is based, Area Sq. donated materials and have offered to continue to donate materials that we can use in our training.
Currently, we are discussing with Area Sq. other ways that they can help us grow our training base in Southwark – helping even more young people from the local community to gain the skills, confidence and qualifications needed to begin a career in the construction industry.
The Trust would like to thank Mike and everyone at Area Sq. for their support and we would especially like to thank the Considerate Constructers Scheme for raising awareness about the work of the Trust.
