Campaign: To support unemployed young people

Being unemployed can be a very depressing and lonely place.

 

Having been out of work for six months, I’ve noticed there aren’t really many places for young people to get help and advice.

 

So with the help of Fixers, my group and I have created a website, targeted at job seeking 16 to 24-year-olds.

 

We aim to help them with everything from preparing a CV to providing tips for a successful interview.

 

The goal of our Fixers campaign is to encourage more people our age to stay determined and to remind them to never give up.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
