WHAT IS YOUNG LADIES CLUB?
Young Ladies Club is a charity organisation which aims to raise aspirations in disadvantaged young women to achieve their education and career potential by providing mentoring, confidence building activities and career workshops from positive role models.
Young Ladies Cub envisions a world where young women’s socio-economic background does not impact educational and career outcomes.
Young Ladies Club provides a different range of programmes which includes:
1. Mentoring Programme
Young Ladies Club partners with schools to support young women aged 12-15 who are referred to us for the following reasons:
1. Low socio economic background
2. Low attainment
3. Lack of role models
4. Challenging behaviour/engagement
5. Low confidence/ self esteem
2. Employability and Skills Programme
Young Ladies Club develops young women’s skills and talent through our employability and skills programme to lead them to a better future in life.
We deliver our programme to young women who are:
1. Recent graduates
2. Current students
3. Long term unemployed
3. Personal Development Programme
Young Ladies Club personal development programme enables young women to develop their confidence and self-esteem through a variety of workshop and activities. The sessions young women participate in during the programme are:
1. Vision Board Workshop
2. Goal Setting & Motivation
3. Career Development
4. Creative Activities
5. Relationship Building
Our project Fempreneur is a project which aims to financially empower young women from disadvantaged backgrounds through developing their finance and entrepreneurial skills alongside positive role models.
The workshop will host experienced speakers and mentors in the area of financial skills and entrepreneurship.
The workshop will focus on the following areas;
- Understanding Money; This workshop will help young women understand what money is, the functions of money and the relationship young women have with money.
- Budgeting; This workshop will help young women develop budgeting skills and help them to differentiate between their needs and wants.
- Enterprise; This workshop will help young women understand the fundamentals of starting up a business as well as business planning, development.
Why does this workshop matter?
The workshop matters because 64% of young people get their first bank or building society account before they start secondary school, and financial choices faced by young people will likely be more challenging than for past generations.
If we are to help future generations manage their finances well, young people need high-quality financial education so that they can make informed choices and take responsibility for their actions. Young people also bear more financial risk in adulthood due to a decrease in welfare benefits, increased life expectancy and uncertain economic and job prospects.
Enterprise is also an important skill for young women to possess, as it provides a positive outlook and an ability to see the glass half full rather than half empty, and is a valuable attribute for their whole life.
With your help Young Ladies Club has the opportunity to bring this project to a new group of young women.
