19 Jan Connecting Futures Success Story
In Summer 2022, we reached out to Coram’s Fields partners, to see if we could secure some part time employment for one of our young people, Steven.
Steven comes from an area of North London with a prevalent gang culture; he actively wanted to avoid this and so joined the youth club of Coram’s Fields two years ago. He was keen to gain part time employment alongside his studies, to increase experience whilst earning some money, and thanks to one of our Connecting Futures members, he was able to do this!
Middle Eight Hotel was keen to have Steven on board, and we are so pleased to say he has flourished in his role there, and as you can see he’s having a great time! He has been growing in confidence, as well as learning valuable new skills. We are proud of Steven’s success and the impact Connecting Futures has had on his future.
Here is what this experience has meant to Steven:
“Since working at Middle Eight I have had the opportunity to understand how the hospitality industry works and the different roles available. As my first job it has really helped my mindset and confidence towards work.”
Coram’s Fields is grateful to the Middle Eight Hotel for collaborating with us and providing amazing employment opportunities.
