Give an hour, make a difference

Get involved

We’d like to invite you to give an hour and make a difference to the future career choices that a young person makes.

There are so many ways you can support your local school or college, whether that be in person or virtually.

Sharing your career journey can be powerful. Your insights, unique industry knowledge and experience can make a difference to the options a young person considers for their future career.

You could be the role model who changes a young person's life, just by showing what is possible.

Watch the video to hear from SMEs about why they are working with young people to make a difference to their career choices.

What can you do in an hour?

It might feel like an hour is too short to have a real impact, but we know from experience that an hour can create new perspectives and inspire new ideas. You could speak to a class about your sector, play a role in a business competition, carry out a mock interview or support a CV workshop. Even these short activities make a big difference and can change a young person’s life.
