Engaging activities for young people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism
The Co-operative (ad)Venture Project involves a series of engaging online activities which take place twice a week, equipping young people with learning difficulties, disabilities, and autism, aged 16 - 30, with the skills needed to assist with the smooth transition from compulsory education to further education, training, and employment.
Young people will;
Gain a deep understanding of co-operative values and practices.
Set up their own “co-operative” taking action to tackle any problems they collectively identify in their local community.
Attend work experience to help gain the experience needed in the workplace.
Gain confidence and skills to take into their working life, boosting their local community.
If you have anyone in mind that you feel would benefit from the project, you can sign them up online. Dates for the activities will be confirmed once you have signed up. If you need any more information, please contact Liam Flinn on 07591 389 069.
