Our aim is to increase participation of Women and Girls in a wide variety of sports, physical recreation activities and in physical education.. With this in sight, CPFC Foundation launched our first ever CPFC Foundation Female Youth Forum to empower young females to own their futures!
The hope is that the forum will allow us as a Foundation to gain a better understanding of the Barriers females may face and how we can overcome them in time, enabling us to promote and provide female participant and empowerment at the highest level.
An important aspect of the Forum will be to provide a volunteering workshop. Volunteering is vital in today’s harsh economic climate where young people are struggling to gain any experience in the career path they may have chosen. We are looking to engage females and provide them with opportunities to enhance their skills and improve their volunteering experience as well as signposting potential progression pathways onto careers, apprenticeships and further training for volunteers.
This would also lead to developing youth led initiatives that tackle wider community issues for the benefit of local communities and we also strive to provide accredited and non-accredited training opportunities to underpin and support the volunteer’s experience.
