Grassroots Activators Programme ‘Call to Arms’

The Grassroot Activators Programme (GAP) is a year long initiative to be delivered in central Bristol and then out in communities across the city over 2 days a week for 16-25 year olds from marginalised neighbourhoods of Bristol. GAP will raise aspirations, create role models and develop realistic pathways to future opportunities in employment or education based on young people’s passions.

There is much more detailed GAP information attached.

The GAP ASK’s are as follows:

– Promote the GAP opportunity to 16-25 year olds from marginalised communities across the city you have supported past and present and connect with us (we are happy to talk with individuals or present GAP to groups)

– People to volunteer to be an InKind GAP – VCSE or Business mentor

– Organisations and businesses to explore sponsoring a young people onto GAP

We are now asking some organisations to broker a meeting with other local organisations and potentially interested young people, so we can talk with a number of organisations and young people at once, say in ‘Southmead’ or ‘Hartcliffe’. This may be something that the community anchors or established youth work organisations can support us with?
