Camden Youth Pathways Finder

Camden Youth Pathways Finder

Camden’s Youth Pathways Finder project will provide an individualised programme of learning, enterprise skills and employment opportunities targeted at young Camden residents, aged 19 to 25, who are in danger of violent crime, involved in youth violence or vulnerable to being at risk of exploitation.

The programme aims to open up new opportunities and develop aspirations for young people – this is a cornerstone to supporting the participants to live full and fulfilling lives away from poverty and lack of opportunities.

All employment opportunities are to be fully-funded by Camden Council. This means funded posts to fulfil your organisation’s resource gaps. This creates an opportunity to support the most vulnerable to realise their potential.

  • The placement holder is able to engage in enrichment activities that broaden their insight into your organisation and sector.
  • 1-2-1 insight meeting with senior professionals.
