Inspiring the Future

Do you want to make a difference to young people in your community?

By becoming an Inspiring The Future volunteer, you can help inspire young people to think about what is possible in their futures.

Having the opportunity at 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.

As an Inspiring the Future volunteer, 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. 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 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.

So, sign up today and start inspiring children in your community by showing them a future they can aspire to.

About Inspiring the Future

Young people aspire to be what they see around them in their everyday life but it’s difficult to aspire to a future that you never see and don’t know exists.

Inspiring The Future changes this.

We believe that every young person can be whatever they want to be – wherever they live, whatever their parents do, whichever school they attend and however they identify themselves.

We show young people exciting futures. We give them the opportunity to meet face-to-face a wide range of role models doing interesting, exciting jobs to inspire and motivate them. And we help them to understand that by aiming high, working hard and making an effort in school or college they can realise their dreams
