Building the Future
DMSF work within the top 20% areas of deprivation, using sport as a vehicle change to build character and develop behaviours that are ultimately transferable throughout their whole lives.
Many of the young people who attend our careers fair are being educated in Pupil Referral Units, which means they are receiving their education outside of mainstream schools as they struggle to engage with the national curriculum. These young people can miss out on the opportunity for work experience and can therefore often feel discouraged from seeking employment. The aim of this event is to engage young people with practically based exercises and demonstrations that provide an insight into different industries and raise their career expectations.
