Our work with businesses
Our work with employers underpins everything we do.
Our programmes wouldn’t have as much of a profound impact
on our young people without volunteers providing that direct
access to the world of work. Volunteers work with the young
people through our workshops, masterclasses, mentoring
programmes and networking events to help them develop their
communication, self-awareness and teamwork skills.
Through sharing their own knowledge and experiences, our
young people are able to break down their perceptions of ‘City
workers’ and understand that the people who work within the
glass towers of London are just like them.
