Give an hour… make a difference

Give back to your community by sharing your career journey and knowledge with young people in secondary schools and colleges.

An hour really can make a difference to a young person’s life and could be what inspires them to start a career in your industry.

You could be the key to ensuring a young person gets the opportunities they need.

Last year we supported 62,123 employer encounters with young people

“I thought volunteering in a school was an opportunity for me to give back to my community, but I’ve actually gained so much more than that which has helped me and my business.”

Jim Rowbotham, Managing Director, Pexa Ltd
