JC8 Vision

They always say: time changes things but you actually have to change them yourself - Andy Warhol


Our Vision


We believe skills are important but what’s more important is that young people have the confidence, attitude and motivation to be able to use those skills when they start a job or work experience. If those factors are not addressed, the chances of failure are increased dramatically. We also believe that young people need support through the processes of finding employment including having a well-presented, relevant CV, help with job application forms, as well as support and guidance before an interview. We also believe networking and referrals can assist in helping young people enter the workforce or gain relevant work experience.

We provide more than just a meeting place. Our expertise will provide you with a holistic experience – centred on proactivity to improve your life chances and excel in your chosen field.

We will collaborate closely with you to develop a positive outlook and support you to foster an optimistic and ambitious attitude resulting in you achieving your goals..

We are committed to supporting you:

Improve your confidence and self-esteem.
Prepare for the world of work.
Gain purposeful work experience.
Support you to learn the relevant skills to motivate you as well as:
