The Powys County Council Action for Community Enterprise Programme (ACE) has been established to help young people in rural communities. Assisted by funding from Welsh Assembly Government, the scheme has been designed to help young people get work, get better jobs, start their own business and/or do something good for their community.
The aim of the ACE project is to support the personal development of young people in rural communities by helping them gain new and develop existing skills that provide a basis for both economic activity and community involvement. Then to use that learning to benefit both the individual and the community they live in. Through a range of coaching, advice and learning situations we hope to challenge young people to consider possibilities they might not have thought about before, and help to make things happen.
Young people are the future of our rural communities and if they have the ability to contribute both economically and socially then a healthy balance can be reached for all.
The vision of ACE is to create a rural community that is socially and economically viable and environmentally sustainable, where everyone has the opportunity to contribute to community cohesion and help shape life for themselves and for future generations.
The ACE programme is available to young people, aged between 16 and 30, who have left full-time education.
First course starting 5pm Friday 21st November.
