Springtime brings countless ways to become more active in the community. Fundraising events, volunteering opportunities and community activities can help us take a break from the office, enjoy the warmer weather and connect with others in the local area.
Inspire! is looking for more helping hands during this busy season in order to further our mission of developing young people’s skills and aspirations. Here are just some of the ways you can show your support this Spring:
Volunteer at a local school
At Inspire!, we rely on the generosity of volunteers to carry out our mission. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved this March and April, whether you’re available for a whole day or just a few hours. By sharing your valuable knowledge about the business world, interviews, pitching and more, you could open up a world of opportunities for young people. What’s more, you could develop your own communication and presentation skills. Professionals from a range of career paths and backgrounds are welcome!
If you want to give back to the next generation, check out our upcoming volunteer programmes.
Run the Hackney Half Marathon
What better way to celebrate Spring than getting your running shoes on? The Hackney Half Marathon is a 13-mile run that snakes through the colourful borough of Hackney. By running, or even just coming along to support, attendees will help to bring the community together over a range of local and national causes. Plus, there will be a variety of food trucks and events for spectators! We have a suggested minimum fundraising target of £250 for runners.
Plan a fundraiser
If you or your business would like to contribute on a larger scale, why not host a fundraiser? With the warmer weather, there are plenty of fun, outdoor events that can bring your colleagues and community together in support of student success. Donations enable us to prepare more young people for future success, and we’re always looking for new ways to spread the word about our work. Whether you’re sticking with a small bake sale or going big by planning a community concert, a fundraising event is a great way to encourage giving.
Host a workplace visit
If you run a business in the local area, consider hosting a student visit. This is not only a great chance to promote your organisation, but also show your devotion to the community. Past visits have included a diverse range of workplaces, from local restaurants to tech startups.
A visit typically includes a tour of the office, hands-on activities, questions or presentations, and can be structured for primary or secondary school pupils. Many of our programmes are looking for visitation opportunities before the school year ends, so this is a great time to host!
