Prince s Trust
Prince' s Trust Teams are made up of around 12 young people who together take on community projects, go on a week's residential, do two weeks' work experience, put together their CVs and start job searching, as well as learning new skills. They're supported along the way by experienced and friendly staff who have lots of experience.
