INSPIRE 2 IGNITE CIC
ACTIVATING YOUNG TALENT INTO INDUSTRY
Helping them understand who they truly are through life-changing experiences.
We activated Inspire 2 Ignite CIC because there are over 800,000 economically inactive 14 – 24 year olds in the UK. This staggering number of underserved young people are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).
Imagine if these young people had the chance to equip themselves for life and dive into the world of enterprise all year long?
We understand that every young person has untapped potential waiting to be unleashed. Our mission is to provide a safe space for young people to become aware of their key characteristics, regain their self-belief and become self-sufficient as they equip themselves for life.
At 15, Victor was expelled from two schools, appearing destined for a troubled path.
But fate intervened when he joined Olive Academy Alternative Provision and engaged in our “Curious About Ice Cream” project.
His enthusiasm for marketing, sales and unique flavour ideas sparked a transformation, shifting him from a troublemaker to a determined young man. During the summer, he consciously pursued our ultimate work experience at Bidwells, applying his newfound knowledge.
Victor’s journey culminated in a public talk at an exclusive Inspire 2 Ignite CIC event, showcasing his remarkable transformation and impact of our engagement. This story showcases the power of second chances and how experiences like these can shape young lives.
