We are FetLor Youth Club, a youth work charity that has been working with young people from areas of deprivation in North Edinburgh and beyond since the 1960s. Over 350 young people aged 7 to 18 attend our drop-in clubs and range of activities every week. We aim to increase opportunity and build confidence and resilience in young people.
We're delighted to have received your support for our exciting new pilot project, Scran Academy. Scran aims to teach young people skills for enterprise and for life by running a catering business from FetLor Youth Club. Overseen by trained chefs and cooks, young people will learn skills in enterprise by catering for all sorts of events and occasions. Scran Academy will support the most vulnerable young people to transition beyond the classroom into the workplace and wider life, while gaining qualifications and growing in confidence and self-belief.
This funding will allow us to grow from a small pilot project to a full-scale catering business, supporting 100 young people every year to gain qualifications and skills in entrepreneurship so they are ready to leave school and enter the world of work.
