Workingrite

Charity registered in Scotland SC042604

WorkingRite is a youth employment charity. Our mission is to get 16-19 year olds into sustained employment, apprenticeships or purposeful learning. We do this through individually matched and supported work placements with local employers.

We help vulnerable, NEET young people discover their talents, confidence and direction, and help them make that fundamental transformation from adolescence to adulthood.

Committed, understanding and patient local businesses give our young people a chance, some structure and role models to look up to. Through on-the-job experience, one-to-one mentoring and additional support for up to six months, our young people become more employable, more motivated and more ambitious. Over 60% of our young people progress to employment, apprenticeships or purposeful learning.
