Empowering young people aged 16-24

We are excited to announce the 14 organisations we are partnering with to deliver Phase 2 of Gen22!

Gen22 is a free to access project creating opportunities for young people (16-24) from the West Midlands to gain employability boosting opportunities.


Gen22 is for young people who might otherwise struggle to access opportunities.  Barriers could include lack of confidence; being a young carer or young parent; or having a criminal record. Participants work with authorised organisations to undertake a 30-hour volunteering assignment. Assignments will link to one of two thematic areas: Creative, Cultural & Digital or Physical Activity & Wellbeing.

If you know of a young person that would benefit from Gen22 - refer them below!

“Its definitely given me such a boost and been such a positive impact on my life.”
