What is YouNG?

YouNG is an innovative project run by Rushcliffe Borough Council aiming to give new work experience and careers event opportunities to young people in the area. The YouNG project works with businesses, schools and parents to act as a link between pupils and local/national companies (Rolls Royce, Nottingham Rugby Club, Vision Express and more) in order to make work experience and apprenticeship opportunities more accessible and available.

How can you get involved?

The YouNG project recruits 7 pupils from 7 schools in the area (including Toot Hill) to work for Rushcliffe Borough Council with YouNG for a year period, gaining valuable experience and earning money whilst doing so! If you are currently in Year 9, then you will be presented with this opportunity through school in the Spring term, but if you wish find out more information about the project beforehand feel free to email or visit Mrs farmer or the current YouNG Ambassador.

If you are interested in applying to work experience through YouNG visit the website WeAreYouNG and follow YouNG on Twitter (@YoungWeAreYouNG) and Facebook (Young Network Group) for more information on the opportunities available to you!
