TEAM YOUNG PEOPLE (TYP) IS A NEW COLLECTIVE OF SELF-EMPLOYED CONSULTANTS AND YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS WHO:
TYP will showcase the work of members alongside opportunities for collaboration with potential partners. It will serve to signpost people’s individual business ventures as well as the Collective’s overall identity as an asset-based resource offering multiple skill areas from the creative arts, design and media, to youth engagement approaches, inspirational training and coaching, programme design and development. If you want to involve young people, why not work with them? If you want to empower young people, why not employ them? TYP offers an example of how people can collaborate with and listen to each other in new ways.
Some members of TYP will be financially supported over a period of 3-6 months to help establish their individual enterprise status. This support takes the form of a tailored consultancy contract for work that is focused on an individual’s personal development alongside a current Team project.
TYP has been developed by Colin Falconer and Carl Miller. It is currently financed through the work of InspireChilli, with the aim of offering members paid opportunities to participate in relevant work contracts with InspireChilli as part of TYP's collaborative ethos. It will seek external funding and sponsorship to increase capacity to reach more young people, offering its approach and brand for others to adopt. Current supporters include Bootstrap Charity.
If you want a Team Young People, or be part of the founding Team, please get in touch by emailing TEAM@inspirechilli.com.
