The Prince’s Trust Team project, a 12-week personal development course which is run in many locations nationwide, helps disadvantaged young people to discover new abilities through teamwork in their community.
The project has proved a resounding success, with three in four people moving into work, education or training within three months of completing the programme.
Team offers young people the chance to take part in a community project, such as rejuvenating wasteland to benefit local residents, or giving a makeover to a community space. The young people involved are in charge of planning the activity, fundraising for any needed materials and carrying out and completing the work.
The Prince’s Trust is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Team this summer, and over the years has helped more than 187,000 young people across the UK to build their self-esteem, skills and earnings.
