Paula is is passionate about helping young people to gain skills outside of education, find new opportunities, learn digital tools and technologies and bridge the gap between young people and employers.
Youth Routes is an organisation that is focused on helping young people to discover their talents, believe in themselves and develop to their full potential.
This involves many things from building business skills, encouraging voluntary work, providing music performance opportunities, personal development and life skills.
Youth Routes run music festivals involving young people in all aspects of the festival: planning, organising, advertising, enterprise, performing and reporting on the event.
