Social Justice Faculty Conduct Research for The Prince’s Trust

The Princes Trust

The Prince’s Trust is a national youth charity that supports young people aged 13-30 who are struggling to find work.

The programmes are designed to help young people develop the skills and confidence to move into education, training, employment/self-employment or volunteering. It delivers seven core programmes in different locations across Wales. One of the programmes is the Enterprise programme, which helps unemployed young people to start their own business. It provides mentoring and financial to help get young people become self-employed.

Since August 2014, six selected students from the Social Justice Faculty at UWC Atlantic College have been undertaking a research project for The Trust in the seven Welsh local priority areas which were identified for the Enterprise programme.

On Tues 3 Feb 2015, their findings were presented to the Princes Trust executives in the Hearst Room at St Donat’s Castle

Arijit, Ife, Jo, Kendall, Meg, Sankalp and Jeff, who worked on the project said:

'Earlier this week, we presented our findings to two representatives of The Trust. It was an interesting experience and they were very satisfied with it (and so were we).'
