Get a Future

We recognised that there was a distinct lack of opportunity for many young people within the city to gain valuable work experience. Together with registered charity Carlisle Youth Zone, we created the ‘Get a Future’ project to fill this gap, encouraging local businesses to ‘take a chance’ on youngsters and provide work placements and mentoring, helping young people to understand and achieve the skills they need for the future, learn why education is crucial, and importantly, realise the breadth of opportunities available within their own home city.

For Get a Future to be successful and help realise youngsters' dreams, we need your help! If you can provide a young person with a week, a day, even a few hours work experience here and there, please get in touch and together we can help the youth of the city realise their ambitions, understand the opportunities available to them and reach their full potential.
