About us


 

 

 

 

The Juno Project empowers teenage girls who have been, or are at risk of being, excluded from school, to achieve their goals in spite of their challenges.

 

OUR MISSION is simple.

encourage, enthuse and empower.

 

The next generation is our biggest asset. And overflowing with untapped talent and passion.

We unlock it.

This Is Me has been a fantastic programme. It has given the girls hope, and made them realise they are not marked by mistakes they might have made or challenges they may have lived through.
All of the girls who have completed the programme are now motivated to succeed and make something of their lives; This Is Me has made them understand that this is a realistic achievement for them.

Working with girls aged 14-16 who've experienced a range of challenging and difficult circumstances, we encourage them to explore their behaviours, attitudes and responses - and develop a growth mindset that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve whatever goals they set themselves.

It's powerful, it's phenomenally successful, and it's humbling. 

And it's based on these three simple words.

ENCOURAGE, ENTHUSE AND EMPOWER.


We work with the girls over either 8 or 24 weeks, exploring

  • The relationships they have with themselves
  • The relationships they have with other people
  • Employability skills

 

In small groups, the girls share their experiences and concerns and, in conjunction with a trained facilitator, develop positive strategies and a growth mindset to capitalise on their skills, and move forwards from any challenges or less positive behaviour patterns.

 

We then pair them with a mentor at the end of the programme, who supports them for the next two years; helping them through their transition from school to college, an apprenticeship, or a job.


Thank you for all the sessions, it was all amazing and knowing that even though I’ve been through hard times I’ve still got a chance to make it all better, and that’s thanks to you.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to work with us. It has been a pleasure and the women you brought along with you were so inspiring. You’ve really made a difference in my life and the way I feel about myself.
