On the 26th January 2022, many schools, youth organisations, charities and businesses from the progressive food and farming sector came together to hear about Feedback’s new youth orientated project in Buckinghamshire.
Green Futures will support the local green economy, address youth unemployment and reconnect young people to land and nature. Together, we will foster new relationships between schools, youth organisations food businesses and social enterprises to bolster the county’s food and farming sector.
Green Futures is Feedback’s bespoke youth employability and green vocation scheme that:
· Creates new local career pathways through a network of youth, food sector and environmental
organisations across Buckinghamshire and funding for collaborative pilot projects.
· Offers training, careers advice and support, through safe and empowering experiences for young people aged 11-17 years from marginalised backgrounds.
· Create new 15 week Real Living Wage internship placements for local young adults aged 18-24 in food and environmental organisations. We will fund interns wages and provide training and
guidance for host organisations to offer high quality placements that improving access to the sector for underrepresented young people.
Green Futures will resource the creation of new opportunities whilst improving access to them for
underrepresented young people. We are delighted to be able to offer this work in Bucks and are looking for organisations who want to collaborate in building a sector which delivers change for the planet and its people.
