This is a great scheme Tessa. Good luck with it all and when you trial it in London let me know and we would be on-board. Zenon

Best of luck Tessa, I couldn’t be happier to support young people and their lucky local communities to connect and wish you lots of luck - would love to help further in other ways and hear how you get on, Trina

Incredible initiative! Not enough people understand this is exactly what our young people need to motivate and inspire them. It's so easy to sit in ivory towers and make assumptions like "it wasn't easy in my day, these kids are just lazy!". If I knew when I was younger that work could be as fun as my job in tech is back then I would have knocked it out the park to get there 10 years earlier. All the messages I had in school and growing up were that work would be miserable and difficult to get into, but I got lucky landing in tech almost by accident. Very few kids get lucky and it's such a shame.

Hey Tess, Really fantastic project, hope it all goes well. Just a (very) small personal contribution from me but wanted to be on board. Keep up the awesome work :)

Collaborative Future is a great scheme to give young people exposure to the kind of practical, real world work experience that will help them build a #futureofwork for themselves. Plus a brilliant way for freelancers and micro businesses to get support, give a bit back and provide a positive, collaborative environment for young people to thrive.

This is such a great venture with a huge amount of potential. Thanks for putting this together! Incidentally, Birmingham would be very interested in a project like this! Will be following closely :)
