The Key Employment Youth Services 3 on 3 basketball tournament concluded yesterday. The competition has been running over the last 7 weeks under the eye of KEYS Coordinator Allan McKibbin. Each and every week, kids, teenagers to young adults turned up in droves to play at this awesome venue. A total of 6 teams all with a minimum of 5 players turned up to the West High Street venue to play some “Street Ball”. Last night concluded with a BBQ and presentation ceremony to the winners. This won’t be the last 3 on 3 tournament so stay tuned for news on the next tournament.
“Key Employment has changed my life by getting me a job and helping me start my career. They check on my progress regularly and are always there to offer support if I need it.”
“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
