Volunteers

Want to make a difference for young people in your community? By becoming an Primary Futures volunteer you can help inspire young people to think about their futures.

Children begin to form stereotypes about occupations, careers and universities from the age of six*. Having the opportunity at primary school to meet a wide range of people doing different jobs is really important – particularly for those children from disadvantaged backgrounds who have few successful role models, either at home or in their local communities.

You can open children’s eyes to the all the possibilities for their futures, whether you’re a CEO or an Apprentice, you’d be amazed how inspiring your story can be.

Your commitment can be as much, or as little, as you can offer: from giving up just one hour a year to share your career journey with young people in a state school, to the exploring the bigger commitment of becoming a school governor.

Using our online match-making platform you can search for volunteer opportunities in your local schools or colleges or respond to schools invitations –  and you can say how you would like to get involved.
