'Pathfinder' - Youth Employability Programme for NW Glasgow

'Pathfinder' is aimed at 16-24 year olds in the North West of Glasgow. Together with our partner 'Workingrite', we (DRC Youth Project) aim to offer ongoing support to young people who are ready to make the next step in their lives. Through meaningful engagement, we will work together with each young person to find a positive pathway into employment no matter what situation they find themselves in.

Young people who participate in the programme will gain a 3 month placement with a suitable organisation. Each participant will receive £90 p/w and will gain accreditation during their time on the programme. There are opportunities to be kept on for apprenticeships and full time employment. 

Are you aged 16-24 years old and looking to find a job? Do you know young people who would be ready to take the next step and participate in the programme? 

If so, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. Our office number is 0141-951-8669 or email us at gerard.drc@hotmail.com

Officially Amazing!

On Sunday, 18 young people from our 8-11 years group (Yoker, Scotstoun and Whiteinch) were invited to the BBC studios! 

We took part in the filming of an episode of 'Officially Amazing!". As members of the studio audience, we were in the thick of the action! During the show we witnessed the world record being broken for the number of Christmas Crackers pulled in 30 seconds! 

We watched a contortionist break the world record for the number of eggs put in an egg cup only using your feet while bent over backwards! We also seen someone fail to beat the world record for hitting golf balls over 50 yards while on a unicycle!!

Sorry if our blogs been a little bit quiet lately. We've been so busy and haven't been able to stop for a breath! There has been loads 'n' loads going on! Here is just a snapshot of our latest cross community event. We hosted a Halloween Party for young people (aged 8-11 years) from Yoker, Scotstoun and Whiteinch. What a crazy night of music, games and laughter! Some amazing costumes and some excellent dance moves on show.
