Volunteering & Pro bono Over the past few years, the rapid growth of the charity has caused a great deal of change. On this journey we have had a great deal of help from very talented individuals and organisations. The continued growth of the charity has unearthed further volunteering opportunities and we would be excited to hear from people who can 1. Help us to grow our Young Leaders programme or 2. Help us to scale the charity As more and more young people complete Teens and Toddlers programmes, our Young Leaders programme continues to grow. As a result, they are in increasing need of support. We are also keen to improve the resources available to the Young leaders Group to further enable positive change for our graduates. You can help us to do this in one of two ways: Share your personal expertise: If you have expertise in youth work, education, strategy, marketing, digital, social or design, or if you have some great ideas on how to develop a growing charity. Pathways into work: When we asked our graduates what they wanted to get out of the Young leaders Group, 74% wanted training/work placements to help them get the job they want, and 57% requested “skills to understand work opportunities/how to succeed”. We have responded by focusing on establishing and developing partnerships to support pathways into work. Partners have included Merlin Entertainments, Costa Coffee, Roast Restaurant, Egon Zhender, Brokerage City Link, PwC, Arc and Deutsche Bank. To support our growth, we are looking for two key types of support: Budget Relieving Support and Operational Expertise 1.
