HOP Into Your Future

Introduction

Funded through the Community Renewal Fund, HOP Into Your Future is an exciting new programme aimed at supporting disadvantaged and under-represented young people aged 16-24 in Hertfordshire. By widening access to work experience opportunities in your business, you can help young people to succeed.

CAN YOU HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Now, more than ever, we need to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach their potential, be inspired by local businesses and discover the range of careers available.

By offering as little as 12 hours of work taster activities, you could help transform a young person’s prospects and give back to your local community.

HOW CAN YOUR BUSINESS BENEFIT?

  • Discover local talented job seekers
  • Receive expert mentoring training for your team
  • Access support and guidance to set up work tasters
  • Be introduced to excellent training providers
  • Receive up to £1,000 in incentives and help with accessing additional government support
  • PR and media opportunities for your company

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

  • Offer 4 x 3-hour work tasters for a young person
  • Allow a member of your team to attend ½ day mentor training
  • Share your story to inspire other Hertfordshire businesses to get involved
  • Sign up to the Hertfordshire Pledge (to support young people in the County)

You will also have the option to convert:

  • The placement to a 70-hour work experience trial (£250)
  • The work experience trial to employment or an apprenticeship (£750)
