I Am #InspiringTheFuture

I am #InspiringTheFuture is our new national campaign to build up a 100,000-strong national network of volunteers from the world of work, giving millions of children and young people the opportunity to meet role models from every industry, profession and sector. Our long-term aim is to create 10 million face-to-face interactions between pupils and volunteers – all potential “lightbulb moments” to widen aspirations and inspire the next generation.

If you’d like to volunteer to share your career story with young people, or if you’d like to connect your school with volunteers from the world of work, you can sign-up here.

Inspiring The Future enables teachers to invite volunteers into school and share their career stories. This new campaign seeks to double the number of volunteers from the word of work signed-up to the network.

Please help us:

  • spread the word about Inspiring The Future
  • encourage individuals to sign-up to volunteer
  • encourage employers to support staff to volunteer
  • encourage schools to sign-up to take part

We’re focusing our campaign on Twitter but welcome activity across other platforms too.
