Global Works is a brand new community-based employability programme in partnership with the LFC Foundation and Standard Chartered Bank.
The programme will look to provide high-quality, outcome-driven delivery around employment support.
Delivered across New York and New Jersey, the programme will work predominantly with 16–18 year-old seniors in high school. The programme will target participants from disadvantaged backgrounds that are at risk of not attending college and would face long term unemployment.
Consisting of sport-based employability sessions, mentoring and work experience; the programme aims to get each participant to feel work-ready and actively seeking employment. Through this project, the LFC Foundation will build strong partnerships with local organisations within the targeted areas of high-need that creates mutually beneficial value that has a positive impact on young people's lives. Through the partnership with Standard Chartered, corporate volunteers will provide inspiring mentoring sessions that guide participants on their career paths.
