Last year we teamed up with The Boxing House Ltd (trading as Rathbone Boxing Club and Camden Boxing Club) to offer a number of positions on the Government’s Kickstart Scheme with the addition of training, equipment and support made possible by grants from Camden Giving and St Giles and St George. The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak (pictured) came to speak to us about the opportunities we were offering and met some of our 'Kickstarters'.
This project was hugely successful and we were able to support over 20 young people into employment or further training. Three of these are now employed with The Boxing House and one with Boxwise, one of our outreach delivery partners.
Although this programme has come to an end we are still able to offer a small number of work experience placements and volunteering opportunities that come with the same benefits. Our support includes mentoring, CV workshops, and inputs on interview skills, customer service. Roles include Assistant Boxing Coach, Fundraiser and Social Media Management. To arrange an informal chat to discuss volunteering with us please email RABC@rathboneboxingclub.com.
