Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth YAB

The Great Yarmouth Youth Advisory Board is a body of young people and professionals who meet on a regular basis. The aim of the YAB is to identify issues that impact on young people and to play a strategic role in meeting these needs through the commissioning of services, lobbying on behalf of young people and influencing decision makers.

Funding Tender - Career Advice

Following the success of a recent commissioned project and the impact of Covid-19 on young people’s futures, Great Yarmouth YAB have decided to assign £15,000 to commission a new project.

This project will offer individualised support to young people across the borough to support them to progress with their chosen career goal. The pandemic has meant that young people have missed a large chunk of schooling, have had exams cancelled and this had led to young people feeling anxious about their future. This project will aim to minimise this anxiety and help to increase confidence in young people’s feelings towards their futures.

The closing date for applications is midday on Friday 15th November 2021, any applications received after this date will not be considered.

If you have any questions or require further information regarding the Youth Advisory Board or the funding process, please contact Alisha Lewis on 07464 498193 or alishalewis@map.uk.net.
