Club member David Rankin, speaking at the Rotary District Conference on February 29 about the Village Club members’ involvement with The Prince’s Trust.
David explained that our club members, having a long history of providing annual ‘mock interviews’ for 70 bright final-year students of Harpenden schools, were keen to extend their work to less capable young people.
Finding youngsters who desperately needed help finding employment, training or further education drew him to the Prince’s Trust and their well-established 12-week programme designed to assist 16- to 23- year-olds make something of their lives.
In the 18 months since club members took on providing face-to face interview training with the Trust the ‘positive outcome’ of those completing the programme has risen from 65% to 86%.
