CatZero is a youth development charity helping young people that are that are not in employment, education and training (NEET) across the Humber region to overcome personal challenges and lead positive lives. CatZero aims to increase the confidence and self-esteem of young people by challenging them to complete a 12 week programme focused on vocational and adventure-based activities.
With their funding, Catzero will work with 50 young people NEET or at-risk of being NEET, delivering personalised programmes, which will result in 40% achieving EET outcomes. This includes the opportunity for young people to sail the charity’s challenge-class yacht, an intense teambuilding and learning experience before progressing to the move on process, facilitating entry into training and employment.
