Our primary aim is to support young people in the Thames Valley Area via routes to employment. This includes Skills for Life and Vocational Training, soft skills such as Motivation and Confidence. We also create volunteering and placement opportunities for young people. Additionally, we support the hard to reach unemployed (e. G. Women, Black and Ethnic minorities, disabled, those with learning difficulties, offenders, those on long-term incapacity benefit).

All our projects are led by young people to the fullest possible extent, although training and education are provided by qualified experts. Where possible, we engage volunteers on peer support schemes, to encourage sharing and personal growth. One of our most successful programmes has been IT Recycle, in which we trained volunteers to strip down and rebuild donated PCs to required specifications. These were then passed on to individuals and voluntary organizations who were unable to afford them. We are also successful deliverers of vocational courses such as Train to Gain/NVQs.
