YCSA Young People Look Forward will provide two main workstreams:
a) Groupwork programmes around employability and activity groups to develop confidence and soft skill.
b) Mentoring primarily carried out by volunteers from BME backgrounds who can provide young people with role models and help them widen their perspective on future possibilities.

The Programme Lead will have the responsibility of providing strategic direction for the programme, with responsibilities for accurately reporting to funders in addition to monitoring and evaluation of the programme.
