WorkingRite aims to address community-based challenges – such as deprivation, generational poverty, crime, homelessness and drug/alcohol addiction through life skills and employability training. Our programmes are the practical pathway to a job or apprenticeship for young people (15-25) – starting in school, or once they have left, with longer mentoring provided at the end. It is a relationship-based and person-centred model of learning, designed to inspire young people to succeed, with mentors as the key throughout.
