FItness ACademy - 3 Pillars FITNESS' mentoring & EMPLoYMENT Scheme for ex-prisoners
The criminal justice system is under huge strain and struggles to be effective. We empower people to take control of their lives so they might break the cycle of re-offending, by tackling one of the root causes behind re-offending - employment.
3Pillars Fitness employment and mentoring programme
We run a ‘through-the-gate’ mentoring apprenticeship programme for young men leaving the custody system and for young people in the local community who are vulnerable to crime. Many of the apprentices have completed our 8-week Rugby Academy whilst in custody.
Our fitness company employs apprentices and coaches who are on our prisoner apprenticeship programme. The programme mentors and supports former prisoners to gain the skills and qualifications to ultimately secure sustainable employment and reduce one of the root causes behind re-offending. It is also an opportunity to build the core 'soft' business skills alongside work experience and qualifications that greatly improve job prospects.
