The Co-operative (ad)Venture Project begins in Dufermline in April (Wednesdays and Thursdays)
The Co-operative (ad)Venture Project involves a series of engaging activities which take place twice a week, equipping young people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism aged 16 - 30 with the skills needed to assist with the smooth transition from compulsory education to further education, training and employment. The project has been gaining a great deal of media coverage recently on STV and the local press due to the last project called The Kirkcaldy Kitchen. This project helped tackle the issue of homelessness in Kirkcaldy.
Young people will:
Gain a deep understanding of co-operative values and practices;
Set up their own “co-operative” taking action to tackle any problems they collectively identify in their local community;
Attend work experience to help gain the experience needed in the workplace;
Gain confidence and skills to take into their working life, boosting their local community.
The project will run every Wednesday and Thursday at the Erskine Building from 10.00am - 1.00pm from Wednesday 22 April 2020 until Thursday 30 July 2020.
