-YAC Stars careers drop-in

29/06/2022 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm | Spark York

Are you 18 to 25 years old and caring for a family member or friend? Would you like to talk about careers at a new monthly drop-in?

Working alongside 18 to 25 year old carers we see incredible potential and prospects that are often unfulfilled. With that in mind we have been lucky enough to access some funding from the Carers Trust and Quilter Foundation to help connect young adult carers to employment and training opportunities.

Drop in to Spark York between 5 to 8pm on the last Wednesday of the month for careers activities, introduction to an employer, discussions with a young adult carer role-model and a chance to socialise with others over some food and drinks. 

Each week will be a different theme:

  • March: Strengths and Skills
  • April: Resilience
  • May: Learning from the journey
  • June: Goals and actions
  • July: Networking know-how
  • August: Celebration

No need to book, just drop in! Contact us if you’d like to know more about YAC Stars or our support for young adult carers.
