Supporting Our Work

Whether donating useful tools, time, or skills to our programmes, we are grateful for all the support our volunteers provide to help maintain and develop our charity.

The involvement of volunteers continues to inspire us as we see time and again how peers and professionals from different industries and capacities can make such a difference. 

Volunteers empower us with new ideas and action, and help us ignite young people’s passion for learning new skills and developing new friends, relationships and opportunities.

We have volunteer opportunities to support our programme administration and development behind-the-scenes, as well as front-of-house in mentoring and providing learning resources for participants. Please get in touch to support our work.

Join Our Network Of Volunteers

We want volunteers who are as diverse as our participants.

We want volunteers who can support our participants using their business, technical or education expertise. Young people who are just a few years ahead in their education are invited to join us too (especially participants returning from an Enterprise Academy project). We will take you through formal safeguarding training so that you can work as role models and mentors for participants.

What Volunteers Get from Supporting...

Volunteers will gain the opportunity to help - and learn from - the upcoming generation of fourth industrial revolution workers as they support the development of their digital, creative & interpersonal skills. Being part of our volunteer community and sharing your experience, makes you an integral part of participants' growth & success, where you will benefit from new friends/networks and gain a sense of fulfilment from your work. That feeling is rewarding in itself, but your voluntary work with us will also pay dividends on your CV to help you stand out against other candidates in the job market.
