Trapped in Zone One
'Our philosophy is to build strong partnerships with community groups and organisations, and support our artists, whether it’s their first steps in the art world, or if they’re established already.'

This activity originally started in 2022 as an employment project called Moving On. This has now been integrated into a Trapped in Zone One/London Youth, National Citizen Service (NCS) Programme at Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets for pupils aged 16-17.

("NCS offers a range of different types of experiences which are designed to help young people grow their strengths, boost their confidence, learn new skills, build their resilience, and make new friends.").

Trapped in Zone One, in partnership with GoodGym Tower Hamlets, are looking for GoodGym contributors from January 2024 to take part as a one-contribution. Please see below for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: You should ignore the date on this listing. We will contact you by email to discuss a date that's suitable for you.

What's involved

We're looking for GoodGym members to offer one-off guidance or personal experience in the form of a short talk, on a variety of subjects, including:

  • Interview technique; your experience of job interviews...Anything around interviewing!

  • Writing and/or reading CVs (again, any experience at all would be helpful).

  • Choosing a career: did you know what you wanted to do from an early age, or did you 'end up' in your current career?

  • The benefits of volunteering - including any career benefits!

The practical stuff

  • The sessions will take place on a Wednesday afternoon from 2 - 3:30pm at the school on Commercial Road.

  • The sessions will be led on the day by the Trapped in Zone One team, who will meet you at the school, stay with you and support you throughout.

  • Area Activator Laura will coordinate the sessions with you, and will be always be available for queries.

  • A reminder this is a one-off Community Mission - it's not a weekly commitment!

  • Interested? Please sign-up and Laura will be in touch.

MORE ABOUT THE NCS PROGRAMME

"The NCS Programme offers safe spaces with trusted adults to support vulnerable/underrepresented young people and offer specialist training in a variety of disciplines.

Through engaging in NCS we want young people to:

  • Become world- ready and work-ready

  • Feel able to have an impact on the world

  • Have greater confidence, resilience, and wellbeing

  • Have respect and tolerance for difference and diversity

This will be achieved by the following experiences:

  • Developing life skills and supporting independent living

  • Providing opportunities for volunteering and social action

  • Building employability and work-readiness

  • Enabling social mixing of young people from all backgrounds.

Our programme will run from October 2023 to March 2024 providing weekly provision, supporting young females aged 16-17, working on a social action project, promoting life and employability skills training, aligned with the Skills Builder Framework

Skills Builder Partnership is a global movement of employers, educators, and impact organisations working together to ensure that one day, everyone builds the essential skills to succeed."

Hi Laura, would it be a short talk to one person or to a whole group of people?

And where it says 'writing or reading CVs', would you need someone to help to proof read the young people's CVs?

Hi Amelia, this would involve talking to a small group. CV guidance might involve sharing any experience you have on CV writing, and answering questions.

Hi Laura! I've signed up for the mission on Wednesday 28 June and would love to know a bit more about what you would need or like where it says "social media in the workplace", as I'd love to offer my support to the young people with this aspect. Thanks!
