Seckford Foundation supports and helps young people under 25 living in rural Suffolk through its Springboard initiative. Thomas Seckford’s 1587 founding vision, of providing firm foundations for individuals from where they could build an independent and productive future, is still upheld today through many aspects of the charity’s work, not least the Springboard project.
A comprehensive mentoring programme, encompassing all aspects of a young person’s life, from careers to health and well-being, encourages positive aspiration, helps to evaluate and develop skills whilst pro-actively supporting progression. The programme develops career management and life skills for young people facing challenges with career choices, perceived health or learning barriers or uncertainty about their next steps.
Being involved in this programme, as a mentor or as a business that can offer opportunities from virtual chats and visits, to work experience or employment and apprenticeships, is hugely rewarding. If you would like to be part of this life changing and exciting initiative in any way, please get in touch.
