Back in the Game: Supporting LGBTQ+ young people into education, employment or training

Are you aged 16-25 and living in Wales? Are you currently not in education, employment or training? If yes, apply to take part in our ‘Back in the Game’ programme!

Stonewall Cymru is working with the School of Hard Knocks to deliver a new empowerment programme for LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 to give you the confidence and skills to return education, employment or training.

We’ve created a digitally delivered empowerment programme to inspire and support LGBTQ+ young people. Each morning session is structured around three core elements: The Body, The Mind and The Future. Each core element will allow you to develop a growth mindset as you set a new direction for their future.

Workshops will also include:

  • How to set effective goals
  • How to look for opportunities
  • Interview skills
  • How to manage online image
  • How to be a star at work.

The programme will be delivered in English.

Where: The morning sessions will be delivered online.

When: The programme will be delivered over a number of weeks. To take part, you will need to be available on:

Thursday 27 January 2022 09:30-12:00
