Puma Energy Foundation
Puma Energy Foundation is supporting the development of the Team programme in South Wales.
The Foundation is the charity arm of Puma Energy, and is committed to backing projects in communities to make a lasting difference to people’s lives. These include programmes in 19 counties across several continents.
One of the key focuses for the Foundation is supporting education and training in the communities in which they work. The Team programme’s combination of practical skills workshops, on the job training and community work is consistent with the wider objectives of the Foundation to bring about measureable and meaningful change.
Team is such an important part of our work and benefits not only the young people who take part, but the local areas in which they live. Over 25 years, we have helped more than 187,000 young people through the programme to turn their lives around.
As Puma Energy grows, the Foundation hopes to increase their impact, reaching out into new communities and providing help for the people that need it most.
Executive Director of Puma Energy Foundation Vincent Faber met young people on Team and here he shares his views on the visit and why Puma Energy is committed to supporting the next generation.
“From our experience, we know that the majority of young people are motivated to find work and contribute to society, but often lack the skills, confidence and experience they need to land a job. The Prince’s Trust and Team provide the stepping stone many young people need to get on the career ladder and kick-start their future. We look forward to working with The Trust going forward to provide brighter futures for our young people.”
The Prince’s Trust works with a number of partners in South Wales to deliver Team including Pembrokeshire College, Tydfil Training and Neath Port Talbot Skills and Training. Thanks to Puma Energy Foundation, we will be able to provide more young people with the opportunities, confidence and skills they need to find work, and be successful in their lives.
