BEEP is best


Eight young positive people greeted guest employers and their trained volunteer mentors at the first BEEP celebration event on Friday 21 October. Without doubt employers, mentors and the Motiv8-SW team were ‘blown away’ by the young people who have so far struggled to make positive steps towards work. Their presentations to the audience and their confidence in answering some challenging questions was impressive. These young people have gained more than the Health & Safety and First Aid Certificates they have grown in confidence, become a team, thought about their own skills and aspirations, and planned a positive future. Chelsea said “BEEP is the best programme – I felt that the team genuinely cared for me and my future … Rob (the trainer) is the best”.

These eight young people will have their trained volunteer mentors to support them from now on as they transition towards employment.

Be part of BEEP. Beep is a charity without your support more young people like these, (who are potential mechanics, barbers, hairdressers, farm workers and graphic artists), will be left behind.
