Job rock disco for unemployed youth

A TWO-DAY "disco with a difference" is to be held in north London next week as part of a new initiative aimed at helping unemployed young people in the area.

The scheme has been organised by St John's Church. Duncan Terrace, Islington.

The disco will take place there on Tuesday and Wednesday; the aim is to attract young people who have not found jobs. Representatives from the local employment exchange, the Careers service and the Manpower Services Commission will be op hand to offer advice and practical help.

It is the first time that the statutory bodies in the area have come in on a project of this sort, which sets up a "four-way link" between the Church, statutory bodies, the youth service and employers. More than 1,000 young people are unemployed in the area and appeals have gone out to local employers to help. Employees are also being encouraged to approach their employers and ask if more vacancies could be created.

The project has been organised by Marist Bro Ronnie, leader of the St Johns Youth Club. Anyone who knows of any jobs in the area should contact him immediately: telephone (01) 359 6454 or 226 2614.
