Here at Street League Ashleigh is the Progression Coordinator specifically for the unique programme called the Stand Out Project. The project is led by the West Midlands Combined Authority to utilise opportunities and experiences created by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. We aim to help NEET young people aged 18-30 years old gain volunteering, training and employment opportunities to help them get the career ‘off the starting line’ and to really make the young people ‘Stand Out’ when applying for jobs in the future. We also combine our career support with sport and activity sessions.
Ashleigh has previously worked for a Hospice in Birmingham as the Volunteer and Supporter Engagement Coordinator. Her responsibilities was to recruit, manage, train and support all volunteers as well as being responsible for the 5 different volunteer income streams. As well as this, Ashleigh became the main point of call for the Income Generation Department. Previous to this she completed my BSc Hons in Psychology at Bath Spa University.
The Street League staff are really great, hardworking and passionate people who really care about the future for young people in Birmingham. It really makes every day worthwhile when you see a young person go into a fantastic positive outcome and you see their progression during their time on their programme. The feedback that we receive back from the young people is also a great motivation and really makes us feel great about doing the work we do.
