The RIO provision for the Ambitions programme covers the South East Cornwall area and is available to young people 18-24 years who are, or at risk of NEET.
They host a variety of workshops and work experience opportunities in addition to day to day coaching. We take a creative approach to helping young people define their career path, either through workshops such as textiles upcycling, coding, zine making, female only boxing and business planning sessions. These bring together participants to help them to get stuff done, develop a peer group and improve confidence. Where possible RIO tries to find a placement or work experience for individuals to add to their CVs and runs weekly ‘Opportunity Hack’ sessions to create momentum in their job searching and signpost them on relevant projects.
