We offer rewarding volunteering and mentoring opportunities through one-off programmes/events or on-going projects helping to prepare young people for the world of work.
In 2016/17 our volunteers clocked up nearly 4000 business volunteer hours. Our volunteers are fundamental to our success, we would not be able to achieve what we do without the invaluable expertise and experience our volunteers provide.
Benefits to volunteers include:
- Preparing and supporting our future workforce
- Supporting your local community
- Personal skill and career development
- Opportunity to network with other volunteers
Business professionals volunteer with us across a wide variety of the programmes and initiatives we run. Volunteers can support anything from interview preparation sessions and financial awareness workshops to team mentoring sessions as part of the Champions of Enterprise programme. Volunteers can also support us by mentoring students on the Cultivate programme or judging enterprise competitions.
If you would like to find out more about our volunteering opportunities, please contact Jane Grunseid, Developing Skills Manager.
