The Prince’s Trust has joined forces with Pathway Adventure Activities to offer a free 12 week training programme in Larne starting Feburary 20.

The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is a personal development programme for 16-24 year olds, designed to build the confidence and employability prospects of unemployed young people, and help them to find their next step in education, training or employment.

The course already runs in 16 locations across Northern Ireland through Further Education Colleges, and offers an exciting opportunity to develop skills and make new friends through teambuilding activities.

Sharon De La Puente, Programme Manager for The Prince’s Trust said: “The Team programme is a fantastic programme to help young people get their lives back on track. We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Pathway Adventure Activities and we hope it will develop a brighter future for many young people in Larne for many years to come.”

Neal White from Pathway Adventure Activities said: “Our organisation has been helping young people for many years and now with The Prince’s Trust Team programme we have another outlet to help young people to find their own path.”
