PopUp Talent

popuptalentPopUp Talent was a programme which helped over 2,500 young people to connect with work, education and training opportunities in London, Birmingham and South Wales. The programme, run by GoodPeople with The Foyer Federation and ChangeMakers, saw young people get experience of careers including finance & business, the creative arts & media, sports and the automotive sector.

The approach was made up of three phases: the Talent Shop, which  hit an area for a one-month period to offer young people work-related tasters and activities; the PopUp talent generator, a 12-week programme for young people including training, mentoring, volunteering, and the opportunity to design and deliver a project of their own; and the Talent Pool, which offered ongoing access to mentoring, coaching, and employment opportunities.
