Volunteers

Want to make a difference for children in your community and beyond? By becoming an Inspiring The Future volunteer, you can help raise children’s aspirations by showing them exciting futures.

We’ve now launched virtual interactive sessions to enable children to learn from volunteers remotely. Find out more about virtual activities.

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.

Volunteers are the people who open the eyes of future generations; whether you’re a CEO or an Apprentice, you’d be amazed how inspiring your story can be. You can meet and read about some of our current volunteers here.

Your commitment can be as much, or as little, as you can offer: from giving up from 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 platform you can search for volunteer opportunities with schools or respond to teachers’ invitations –  and you can say how you would like to get involved. Find local activities, or take part in sessions across the UK virtually.
