THE Foyer Federation, in partnership with Changemakers and Harlow Foyer, will host a Pop Up Talent Shop in the Market Square, Harlow providing young people (aged 16-25) with the opportunity to explore different career fields and opportunities through interactive taster sessions.

The one day Pop Up Talent Shop aims to provide young people with imaginative and creative ways to explore different careers through interactive experiences with professionals, entrepreneurs and organisations. Supported by Harlow Foyer, the project aims to build on the skills and talents of young people to improve their future prospects of entering education or employment.

Harlow Foyer’s third Pop Up Talent Shop will feature a range of industries and employers representing such fields as: tiling, music production, jewellery making, floral design, animal therapy, beauty, landscaping and hairdressing. On the day, young people will have the opportunity to try their hand in various industries through taster sessions provided by local employers and businesses.

To find out more about this event, contact Kellie Tighe at 07739 467348 or [email protected].

Pop Up Talent is a modern twist on how and where young people connect with employers. The game’s the same but the rules have changed; using new spaces and conversations, young people are building the skills, attitudes and networks to find and create work in the 21st century: visit www.popuptalent.org.
