Cam Nesa is a project aimed at reducing the number of young people who are aged 16-24 and not in education, training or employment.
It is funded by the European Social Fund and can provide young people with a range of tailored personal support and work-related opportunities.
Young people referred to Cam Nesa will get support from youth workers who will work with them to reach their desired goals. This may include gaining qualifications needed to get into work, meeting new people, group sessions, developing communication and leadership skills, sports sessions, lifeguarding opportunities, writing a CV, interview skills, work placements and tasters, and residential / summer sessions.
All activities and qualifications for young people are fully funded. So far, young people have gained experience and qualifications including IOSH Health and Safety qualifications, sports leadership awards, CSCS (building and construction) card qualifications, sessions on team working, food hygiene certificates, basic cookery lessons, a mud run, money management, managing a tenancy and Skateboard Instructor Level 1.
In the near future we plan to offer some more of the above, and also anxiety workshops, Surfing Level 1, visits to open days at universities, a range of leisure activities, a music project, paddle boarding, community projects with local employers, a rugby tournament, Level 1 Planning & Preparation for Work Experience, Football Leaders Award, Children Young People and Adult Rights in Wales Level 1, Rugby level 1 coaching, Environmental Sustainability Level 1 and 2, and National Trust walks.
The project is led by Pembrokeshire County Council and delivered in partnership with fellow local authorities. We aim to work with 2,000 young people over the course of the project.
If you are not in employment, education or training and would like some help to get you sorted with a plan to reach your desired goal, please contact the Cam Nesa team on: 01437 775845.
