Active Life Club & Human Appeal – UK

Minority Ethnic Youth Employment Conference, “ Missed Opportunities”

Background: Active Life Club (ALC) has been established since 1999. A multi-award winning charity (SCO44392) managed by volunteers and young people, who play an active role on the management committee and day to day running of weekly programme’s benefitting 70-80 youth. ALC does not have core funding and all proceeds from this conference will allow us to sustain activities in developing future leaders.

Human Appeal is an international charity with a track record of alleviating poverty, developing volunteers by teaching them transferable skills and plays an active role within various communities.

Our Digitability program is a pilot project supported by the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership Southside Central. It is a program of three phases; recruiting participants, building their employability skills, and developing digital tools then organizing the conference. 20-25 youth are developing employability skills, leadership skills, taking part in a development residential, learning event management core skills and playing an active role in organizing this conference. ALC has a track record of delivering projects with impact. This program is now coming to a close and our conference will share lessons learned. This platform will also be used to launch our digital tools.

This conference is supported by the mainstream national and local organisations such as Glasgow City Council, Community Planning Partnership, Skills Development Scotland, Youth Scotland, SEMPERscotland, Police Scotland, GCVS, Stand Up, Cash Back and specialized minority ethnic organization’s; CEMVO, CRER, WSREC and Awazfm to share knowledge, understanding and building capacity in dealing with Minority Ethnic Youth under representation in employment and training programmes. This will be supported through tailored workshops on selected topics by the partner organisations.
