Our Talent Coaches, Katie and Tracey, support young unemployed adults who have faced serious problems in their life and need a bit of extra help. Sometimes things are complicated – and that’s when the support that Katie and Tracey provide is more important than ever.
One young man, Josh, stopped me the other day in our centre – because he wanted everyone to know how much Tracey has done for to him.
“I was at Back on Track a couple of years ago and when I came back this time Tracey remembered me straight away. That’s the sort of person she is. This time around I’ve been coming here since July. Tracey has done so much for me, I can’t thank her enough. She’s found six jobs for me to go for in that time. Anything that needs sorting out, she’s there for me.
Recently I messed up and ended up getting into trouble. Tracey came to court to support me. Nobody’s ever done anything like that before. It makes a big difference to know she still believes in me. It’s more than just a job to her – she really cares about people. In the future I want to find a job in construction and she’s helping me figure out what I need to do.”
You know what? With Tracey’s support we think he’s going to get there in the end.
