Greater Manchester Talent Match is a programme held across the borough aimed at targeting 18-24 years old that are the furthest away from employment.
Bolton YMCA’s Talent Coach, Beth takes an holistic approach with a view to improving the chances of employment for these young people.
The young people she may work with can be faced with a range of difficulties, from family breakdown to homelessness to criminal offences or drug addiction. Others may suffer from mental health issues that contribute to severe self esteem and confidence barriers.
She supports these young people based on their own unique needs and ability, to coach them into taking ownership of their futures by offering them access to training and work experience opportunities that without a coach’s support they may not have been able to get into.
