With this Public Health Crisis, that we are all facing together, thousands of young people across Nottinghamshire are feeling the pain that has come with it; as hundreds of them are being let go right at the start of their careers because businesses are having to make hard choices to reduce costs, and hundreds more young people are simply unable to even start their own career path whatever that maybe.
Youth Enterprise & Employability Academy has already seen the damage this pandemic has done to young peoples’ hopes and dreams, it is only going to get worse as more young people are preparing to leave school in few months having missed exams and facing the prospect of a reduction in job prospects.
It goes without any doubt that youth unemployment is continuing to skyrocket during this pandemic. But, on the brighter side of life, we have spoken to young people from across Nottinghamshire who are finding their very own feet, so to speak.
As they take on new opportunities to succeed and thrive by beginning an entrepreneurial journey instead. This pandemic is leading more youngsters down the entrepreneurial route than ever before, while this is remarkable, our young people cannot do it totally alone.
We need to create a supportive environment to promote their strengths, abilities, and aid them with achieving their entrepreneurial ambition, we also support those that are about to start their journey into the world of work by ensuring that when they do leave education they are prepared for the challenges that come their way.
Whilst there is light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to this pandemic, the damage will remain for many years and now more than ever our Small Nottinghamshire based charity is feeling their pain too. So, enable us to continue providing support and opportunities for young people.
