Project New Horizons
A new approach
Project New Horizons helps young people find their own pathway into education, employment and training by opening their eyes to a world of possibilities through a three phrase programme:
- intensive training and preparation
- an overseas expedition
- on going follow-up and support.
With the combined expedition expertise of the British Exploring Society (BES) and the innate knowledge of NEETs within Catch22, this project brings a dynamic approach that promises to challenge, excite and deliver results.
Of the 32 young people who took part last year, all but two are now employed, in education or in training, equating to a success rate of over 90%.
Support Project New Horizons
The results of the programme demonstrate that this unique combination of intensive support in a challenging situation is working for this hard-to-reach group of young people. Catch22 wants to expand and grow Project New Horizons in order to provide more opportunities for young people.
To do this, we need your support. It costs £3,750 for each young person to complete the three phase project, giving them the chance to discover their potential through activities designed to build confidence and motivation, ultimately giving them the skills and aspirations to get on in life. Without intervention, a young person who is not in education, employment or training will cost the economy £9,000 a year on average.
We welcome the opportunity to present a full application and budget, and to discuss partnership opportunities to further support Project New Horizons.
