CEO of Caridon Group returns to ‘Legacy’ to help guide young people into employment
26th February 2020
On Thursday 27th February, our Group CEO, Mario Carrozzo, will return to Legacy Youth Zone in Croydon to talk to young people participating in the organisation’s ‘Get a Job’ programme. The aim is to help inspire attendees to achieve their goals, regardless of the barriers they may be presented with.
Many of the young people who attend Legacy have not yet had the opportunity to earn their own money. They may be trying to get their first job, save money or find new accommodation, all of which can be challenging for a young person, particularly if they do not have adults around them for support.
Legacy Youth Zone offers young people, aged 8-25, “somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to”. Caridon Group was first invited to Legacy shortly after it opened its doors in September 2019. Mario shared the story of his own journey to success, which started at the age of 14, the challenges and choices he faced along the way and why it is so important to set goals and stay focussed.
Of the first group of young people that Mario met last year, one is going to University to complete a degree, two are going on to become apprentices and two are going into possible employment.
Legacy has now started its second 8-week employability course and the theme for Thursday’s session will be goal setting and aspirations. As well as delivering a talk to attendees, Mario will also run a Q&A workshop to help individuals understand what they wish to achieve and how to get there.
