Future Shapers Success

Future Shapers Success

Tash Bright No Comment

Future Shapers is a programme provided by Sheffield Futures that offers personal and educational support to young people aged between 14-17 years old.

Tia got involved with the Future Shapers programme after her mum told her about Sheffield Futures and where to go to get help. Tia said: “I was unemployed, unhappy and I had a lot of worries as I had a lot of stuff to pay for. I was really struggling to find a job…it made me feel sad.”

Once a young person joins Future Shapers they are given their own personal mentor that will work with them to uncover where they need most support and tailor the support to the young person’s needs. Our mentors have helped young people gain confidence, attend extra-curricular activities and search for employment.

“Future Shapers helped me with my CV/cover letters, apply for jobs, and helped me sort out my Maths, so I can have functional skills in Maths,” Tia said.

Future Shapers treats every young person as an individual and understands that every journey will be different. Many young people are given the chance to gain the extra confidence they need to step outside of their comfort zone and push themselves to believe that they can succeed in life. Tia said: “I felt less worried and like something was going to get sorted soon. I felt like I would have a brighter future.”

Since joining Future Shapers, Tia went on to get a series of interviews and has been successful in securing an internship. She is now less worried about her future. “I feel comfortable in knowing that I can approach you Future Shapers if I need further support with anything,” said Tia.
