I recently started up a business focusing on youth work readiness programmes. Teaching our youth how to brand themselves in today's job market. Since most of our youth are unable to afford this service it needs to be provided for free or at a very small fee. In the interim I decided to use my 18 odd years experience in the recruitment industry to begin recruiting to raise these funds. Recruiting is a slow process and I urgently require bridging finance to keep us afloat over the next month as the situation is pretty dire. I have submitted a business plan to the bank, however I don't hold any hope in finding assistance there.
What would be the ideal situation?? To find a company that would be prepared to sponsor us and allow me to provide free quality workshops for our youth.
In Celebration of Youth month I have joined with Female Wave of Change and will be conducting and interactive workshop on the 23rd around Career Planning. I will also be at the STEM Conference & Career Expo assisting graduates and school-leavers in CV preparation.
I would really appreciate all the assistance I can get at this point in time.
