Volunteer for Our Projects and Programmes

Volunteer for us

Are you keen to inspire and motivate the next generation? We need volunteers to ensure the continued success of our primary and secondary school programmes!

We are looking for enthusiastic people, with good interpersonal and communication skills. You don’t need to have worked with young people before as training and briefings will be provided ahead of all sessions, and Inspire! staff will be on hand to support you on the day.

Find out more about our volunteering opportunities below, or visit our case study page to read stories from some of the amazing volunteers who have given up their time to support our work.

Volunteers are essential to our secondary school programmes. Their participation allows students to meet and engage with professionals from a wide range of sectors, giving them the chance to gain crucial insight into different career paths and the skills needed to succeed in the world of work.

Upcoming opportunities include:

  • Hosting an inspiring workplace visit
  • Taking part in a Careers Carousel to challenge gender and ethnicity stereotypes
  • Facilitating interview skills and CV sessions to help young prepare for work experience and future career

We welcome individuals and teams of volunteers. You will receive full training ahead of the programme and support from Inspire! staff throughout your session.
