Milestone Group unveils big plans for Passion Project


Milestone Group (LON:MSG) hopes to physically engage with 250,000 young people through three exciting events running to next year as it gave the latest on its youth Passion project.

It also revealed that Jermain Jackman, winner of the BBC's The Voice 2014, had been appointed an ambassador of the project.

The three events running to July 2015 are the Great British Carnival, Parliament Week and  BE United Urban Quest - Wembley 2015.

 The latter will engage and develop the talents of 13,500 young artists and creative practitioners aged 16-24 years and culminate in a large-scale show at Wembley Arena. 

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has described it as an "exciting new project".

Through these events, Milestone expects to engage with 250,000 young people and a further 3 million digitally.

"All participants will have the opportunity to be matched to employers, sector skills academies and supply chain consortiums for guaranteed interviews, work placements and employment," it said.

The firm also used today's update to launch monthly CreativeXChange events.

These will cover disciplines like fashion, music, film, design, movement, art, animation and creative business in the form of debates, groups and workshops and provide access to over 2,000 jobs from employers and partners over the next 18 months.
