Operations Director of Jaguar Land Rover’s Manufacturing Centre, Trevor Leeks, said:
“Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre is delighted to be a Founder Patron of the Wolverhampton Youth Zone. The Way is a much needed social hub for the young people of Wolverhampton and will give them the opportunity to learn and socialise ‘out of hours’ as well as developing key life skills.
The Way complements our school education and traineeship programmes, which help raise the aspirations and attainment of young people so they gain the skills, vision and courage they need to reach their potential and pursue successful careers.
Our support will help build a stronger community and improve the lives of many young people. The Engine Manufacturing Centre team is very proud to be involved with this project and we look forward to delivering a strong and sustainable legacy.”
Development Manager at The Way, Philippa Gregory, said:
“We are delighted that a company as prestigious as Jaguar Land Rover wants to help fund The Way Youth Zone. We have had fantastic interest from the Wolverhampton community with support from Wolverhampton City Council, major employers like Marstons plc and philanthropists such as Jez Moxey.”
The Youth Zone is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. There are over 20 activities every night for young people to take part in like indoor rock climbing, football, gym sessions, art, boxing, employability sessions and lots more.
