MoneyPlus is proud to support a fantastic new initiative set up by Factory Youth Zone – a charity which runs a state-of-the-art youth centre in Manchester.
The Junior Mentoring Programme, which works with 8-12 year olds, has been set up to support vulnerable young people. The ambition of the scheme is to prevent young people from experiencing issues later in life by building their resiliency and equipping them with the skills to handle difficult situations.
The programme offers 1 to 1 and group mentoring sessions and activities, designed to help achieve personal goals. Since its launch, demand for places in the programme has been high, demonstrating the need for the service and Factory Youth Zone’s reputation for making a positive difference to young people in Manchester.
Chris Davis, MoneyPlus CEO said, “This is a great initiative which we’re very proud to support. We’ve been working with Factory Youth Zone for many years now and we continue to be impressed by the positive influence the charity has on vulnerable young people in the local community.”
