Form the Future CIC

‘Form Your Future’

We are Form the Future CIC. We empower young people to make the right career choices, by providing a bridge between business and education, facilitating corporate volunteers and entrepreneurs to go into schools to explain career options.

Our Form Your Future project, has received funding to inspire the next generation by igniting the spark of entrepreneurialism within them. Participants will be supported to develop a viable business plan, with the aim of running a profitable business.

The funding we receive will be used to allow 12 groups of disadvantaged students (72 in total) to start their own businesses. The programme builds on the skills developed during a ‘universal’ enterprise day which will nurture business skills in 429 students, and is then developed to focus on disadvantaged students – using corporate and entrepreneurial volunteers to act as teachers and guides to help break the cycle of poverty and low aspirations.
