A Christmas Rewards Night for Young Care Leavers
 
Drive Forward is organizing a Christmas event to celebrate the success and accomplishments of young care leavers in London. Throughout our employability and life skills training programme, we have seen young people making great efforts, developing new competences and gaining confidence and self-esteem. Some of them have already found a job, are doing an internship or got into higher education. We want to recognise their hard work with a community Christmas dinner and some fun rewards! project reportread updates from the field
