Here at Southampton Sight we are very excited to be working with young people living with sight loss on a social action project. Our participants will plan social action projects and individual volunteering opportunities which will be beneficial for the community but will also increase their vocational experience and skills, particularly in areas they want to pursue as careers or in further education. A specialist Careers Advisor will facilitate the group to support successful transitions through school to college, training and work-related activities. Topics will include career awareness, career exploration, career preparation including developing vocational and job-seeking strategies, and work experience. 8 young people attending Oasis Sholing are the first cohort to engage with this project and so far have attended some outdoor activities including Go Ape this Saturday. They have also all had preliminary discussions with our staff about their future and will start their enhanced and realistic Career Guidance sessions in November. #CareersAdvice #SupportingTransitions #YouthSocialAction
