What’s the Social Need? Youth unemployment. Schools are struggling to prepare young people to be work ready. The younger generation are being hit hardest by the impact of the financial crisis.
What’s the Solution? “Learning through doing’ in the work place. Real life experience for personal development and improve employability skills.
Why is this unique? Bootstrap has a diverse and talented tenant body of over 500 start up businesses. Tenants cover every sector – from the arts to social enterprise and work alongside each other at desks & studio spaces.
What is Bootstrap? Bootstrap Company is a social enterprise, based in Hackney since 1980. Bootstrap supports startup enterprises, runs innovative educational projects and events.
How will it work? Bootstrap Campus will help 16-24 yr old’s transition into work through a blend of open days, workshops, work experience & work placements. The project will focus on improving employability skills to help young people transition into work, training or further education.
What's the Impact? Bootstrap Campus will create new networks for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Lack of experience is a major barrier for young people trying to get into work.
The work place has changed. The modern workplace is flexible, creative and networked. “The jobs that 16-year-olds will be doing in 10 years time haven't been invented yet.”
Our long term vision?
– Bootstrap Campus is a stepping stone into work, education, training.
– We want to inspire young people with a DIY attitude to their career.
– Build a community of Bootstrap graduates who go on to start work at Bootstrap or are helped to start their own enterprise.
