Welcome to YMCA Bedfordshire

At YMCA Bedfordshire, we are committed to helping young people achieve their potential. 

The 12 week Prince's Trust Team Programme is a fun, informal yet structured course for unemployed young people aged 16-25. Through the achievements and activities on Team, participants develop skills, confidence and motivation. Part of the course involes a two week work placement tailored tto match individual aspirations.

Learners work towards a level 1 or 2 Princes Trust Certificate in Employment, Teamwork and Community Skills through building an evidenced based portfolio.

Team is beneficial to those with no qualifications and graduates alike - it is this mix that makes the programme unique..
