About the Campaign:
The Change campaign is the new program by Music Relief Foundation (MRF)
launched on the 30th of Mar. 2021 to coincide with our 10th anniversary. This
campaign is targeted at young people aged 16 to 25 years old to support them in
getting valuable training and gaining employment. This campaign's primary focus is
to empower and support young people by providing something tangible to help them
in their career and improve their employability skills. We will achieve this by
collaborating and connecting young people with businesses operating locally,
corporate companies, or any entities committed to aiding the community.
MRF offers a two-layered training process to the young person who signs up to the program and will signpost them for a work placement or further training with our partnering company. The first is our mandatory wellbeing training that supports understanding of purpose and goal setting, and the other is optional, either further training or work placement. The wellbeing training will equip the young person with a better mindset filled with confidence and qualification before starting their work placement. It is essential to make sure they learn the most out of their time with the company.
Our Target: 15+ young people into work by the end of 2021
35+ young people into position by the end of 2022
70+ young people into work by the end of 2023
As a grassroots charity, we are aware of the many struggles facing youths today.
Our collaboration with corporate organisations, the Department of Work and
Pension, Metropolitan Police, local authorities, schools, colleges and dedicated
youth services provide us with a unique perspective on understanding nationwide
We see first-hand the community disengagement, the impact of youth centre closes, the diverse personal, home, or school challenges young people face, the consequence of the global 'look perfect' culture to young self-esteems, how vulnerable young children get entangled in criminal activities, and more recently the impact of Covid-19 on mental health, job prospects, gang recruitment and child exploitation.
Our mission is to CHANGE this narrative. Responsiveness is at the core of our work. We are committed to playing an active role in creating solutions and positive changes to improve young people's lives
WORK FOR CHANGE
For over ten years, MRF has helped over 5000 young people be the best they can
be and explore their natural talents, creativity, curiosity, and confidence. Our
services provide young people with a solid practical and emotional foundation
from which they can grow into healthy, confident and booming young adults.
Around 60% of whom we have served are classified as vulnerable, at-risk children (e.g., exploitation), whilst 20% are involved in criminal activities and antisocial behaviour. As such, much of our focus has been centred around encouraging citizenship and teaching the interpersonal attributes (soft skills) needed to succeed and become valued members of communities.
We are looking to collaborate with corporate partners across a diverse range of sectors - from music, financial, marketing, to technological. Your skills, expertise and resources are instrumental in making CHANGE possible. Emerging research has shown that disadvantaged young people will be among the worst affected groups in society because of the Covid-19 crisis. As such, our CHANGE campaign is designed to help those who need it most, young people who need intervention and encouragement to prevent a downward spiral and being written off by society - Inspire, Motivate, Educate. - Inspire, Motivate, Educate.
