"Without the mentorship and support from Small Green Shoots, there is no way I could have started my own business."

Calvin Solomon, co-founder Youth Sauce

who are we?

Small Green Shoots was founded in 2009. We are dedicated to increasing career opportunities for NEETs (not in education, employment or training) within the music and creative industries.

What do we do?

Small Green Shoots is a new type of apprenticeship - we are not about "jobs" we are about "careers".

Our Aims

We aim to invest more in you from the outset. We help you gain access to the entertainment and creative industries through paid classroom learning and internships, plus access to creative grants. This ensures long-term stable careers for years as opposed to short-term, low-earning and unsustainable intern contracts.
