Jewson Partnership Solutions completes its seventh community project with YouthBuild they also teach construction skills to marginalised to disadvantaged young adults and help them find employment.
The current crop of YouthBuild students will graduate on June 23 and will join 120 previous graduates that JPS has supported on the programme.
Managing director of JPS, Scott Cooper, said: “It is a huge honour to partner with YouthBuild and to play a role in shaping the future careers of these talented young people. Seeing them grow in confidence and demonstrate their newly acquired trades on this latest community project has been incredibly rewarding.
“The Javan Coker Foundation is an excellent cause that empowers children and young people with disabilities and special educational or additional needs, and their families. The centre is vital to the local community, and we are proud to have played a role in refurbishing the site so that it can continue to benefit families in Abbey Wood and beyond.”
Many of the students who join YouthBuild enter the program with low self-esteem and little knowledge of how to access employment, the program was set up to help them.
