Shop gives young people new hope
7:20am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
A NEW venture described as an ‘inspiration centre’ is set to open in Pershore on Saturday to support young people across Worcestershire.
My Big Adventure Shop will open its doors at 10am as part of a social enterprise which works with people to help them reshape their lives.
The shop in Cowleys Way, High Street, is part of the My Big Adventure enterprise founded by Stephan Natynczuk.
The scheme operates across Worcestershire and further afield using adventure, counselling, mentoring and education to reach disaffected or young people who are not in education, employment, or training to make a positive impact in their learning and self-development.
“We work with kids that for some crisis in their lives are not getting the benefit of school,”
said Mr Natynczuk. “They come from all sorts of backgrounds. We work to get them back into education using alternative education.
“We have come to a point where we need to subsidise our work. This is the point of the shop. It also completes the circle of a social enterprise.
“I am very excited. It is good for us in all sorts of ways. Profits will go towards community work.”
