We have some even more exciting news, It has been a while in the making but we have an exclusive program running this Summer for 12 young people who are unemployed, ages 17+, starting on the 2nd July. The program is called Aim Hi! and will run for 6 weeks, 4 days a week. The program will take place in Hampden Park, Hotels across Glasgow and the European Championships. You will learn how to become a world class barista, a world class cocktail maker, a world class chef plus visit some exclusive and new hotels and be treated to the VIP treatment. PLUS you will serve people during the European Championships…I say! All participants will be given work experience at the end of the project and we guarantee 100% will get interviews* So if you want to do something different this Summer, gain qualifications, learn about the exciting hospitality world and get a job at the end, then this is for you!
We will be holding an information evening in the VIP box at Hampden Park for anyone interested:
OUR SUMMER CAMP IS ALSO BACK! An incredible three weeks were the young ones of the house will dance, play football, cricket and many other games. Our holiday programme runs from 10am to 3pm for kids and young adults 5+ years old. Not only that, but thanks to our wonderful partner Launch, every day our young people will be provided with warm food, snacks, water and fruit. All the specific details can be found in the image bellow.
And at the end of the summer we will Zip Slide across the Clyde on Saturday 15th. Due to this being a very busy event with many charities taking part to raise funds, We only have limited spaces available. This event does not cost the participant to take part but to ensure all costs are covered for the charity we ask that the minimum sponsorship for this is £200 per participant.
The requirements to take part are:
- At least 16 years of age.
- Maximum of 17 stone in weight.
Not only is this a great way to raise funds for Achieve More Scotland to improve Glasgow’s young people’s chances and help Achieve More improve and extend their services in deprived area’s it is also a very enjoyable event to take part in. The height of the crane is roughly 130ft-170ft and the distance travelled is approximately 750ft-1400ft. So why not go soaring across the Clyde taking in the views while raising money for a very worthy cause? We promise you will not be disappointed.
If you are interested and would like to secure your place – please do so as soon as possible, as previously mentioned there is only a very limited number of spaces available. To register your interest or for more information please contact Toni on [email protected]
