Edventure Froome (UNITED KINGDOM)
Edventure:Frome is a school and platform for community entrepreneurs with the mission to support young adults to take initiative and create viable, sustainable futures for themselves and their community. Edventure Frome brings the local community together to support the next generation, in a win-win scenario for people, community and the environment.
People: Young adults (18-35) from diverse backgrounds gain employability, leadership and enterprise skills through training, start-up support programmes and free-access to workspace. Young adults are supported by people and organisations from the local community.
Local community: Our trainees learn by setting up community projects and social enterprises for local organisations, with the aim to build a more resilient community and bring together people from diverse backgrounds.
Environment: Our trainees develop livelihoods that address social and environmental issues, and which are mindful of their ecological impact.Our key programme, the Edventure Apprenticeship, is a free Community Enterprise Programme including a practical 2-month intensive training, followed by 6-months of support to start-up a project, self-employment or social enterprise.
The apprentices can participate for free as their training fees are earned through enterprise challenges that they take on as part of their training.
