We are a Community Interest Enterprise (CIC) founded on 2012 by Danny Barnes, a person in a mission to help as many people as possible.
We are focused on delivering high-quality professional training, coaching and mentoring programmes to young people and adults coming from disadvantage backgrounds.
When a young person comes to us, he/she might not be ready to go into a job. But we want them to get ready. So, we prepare them. We ask them what they want to achieve, work out what we can do for them, provide them with the appropriate tools and skills and support them through their entire journey to reach their goals.
Acknowledging Youth CIC is the education arm of AY Group – the “one stop shop” place when you think of reducing unemployment among young people and adults. [Include link]
