Meet George the Router – Supporting Scotland’s disadvantaged youth
Our Tools for Life programme is where George can really shine. Through the programme, we support young people who face barriers to employment by pairing them with volunteer mentors who give them the training & advice they need to succeed. A Router is an important tool on a trainee’s journey. Your donation will ensure George’s maintenance and support our mentors, so together, we can help our trainees build a shared future.
So far, George the Router has supported twelve trainees to graduate through our program, with many more to come. Will you be part of their journey?
