Changemakers is a project under the Yusuf Youth Initiative (YYI), the largest Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) youth provider in Dundee, and was initially set out to empower young BME people by connecting them with the opportunities available around them. Research has shown that unemployment in ethnic minorities is high compared to their White British counterparts. Changemakers is working on trying to balance this and encourage wider participation in applying for jobs, volunteering and improving employability within BME communities.
We provide 1-to-1 as well as group workshops on improving employability skills and work with organisations to arrange taster sessions and employer visits for our young people to be able to explore and consider career options. If you are interested in working in partnership with us in reaching out to young BME people in Dundee, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
