In 2016, The Bytes Project was been awarded a grant of £464,827 from the Big Lottery Fund for our three year Exodus 500 project.
The Exodus 500 project supports 500 young people aged 16-25 who are facing employment barriers in Belfast, Derry/Londonderry, Limavady, Magherafelt and Lisburn. The Bytes Project works to improve the employability skills and confidence of young people, including those who are homeless.
The project uses digital technology to create flexible learning experiences and involves mentoring, team building and employability skills, as well as health and well being courses, and work experience. The project supports young people to gain qualifications, connect with their community and improve their self-esteem.
Pete Batey co-ordinates the Exodus 500 programme. He can be contacted for information via on email: email@example.com.
