Tuesday 5th March saw the 'Spring Into Your Future' Event for 16-24 year olds held at Southend United in conjunction with Job Centre Plus.
The event saw employers such as: Insure and Go, Next, Halifax, Ashley Care, and Global Green attend as well as partners such as Samaritans, Life Skills/Coldwell Boxing, YMCA, Crown College, South Essex College, and Connexions. All were attending to help find work and training for young people from the area supported by Job centre staff.
The SOS Bus and the Learn a Living Construction Bus were outside the main building welcoming attendees, who then entered the main hall to meet and talk with staff and companies to help secure work and training for their future. The event was a massive success with over 250 people attending between 10.30am and 2.00pm.
At the end of the event a raffle was also held for the attendees with Southend United donating two sets of 2 tickets for any game before the end of the season.
