Essex Youthbuild

Aims and Activities

Essex Youthbuild is a charity that has been working with teenagers (14-19 years old) helping them gain construction and employability skills for more than 12 years. We take referrals from across Essex. 14-16 year olds (key stage 4) come to us through vocational placements from school. Post school, 16+ young people can come to us if they are not currently in employment, education or training. 16+ young people are paid small bonuses for good attendance and achievement. We also run a free, after school activity that runs on Wednesday evenings during term time and is open to all 14-16 year olds, allowing them to gain some vocational experience and try out different trades before making crucial decisions about college/apprenticeship.
