Young Enterprise seeking Business Mentors for Marple Hall
« Reply #1 on: September 23, 2013, 12:57:29 PM »
Posted on behalf of Suzanne Fairbairn, YE Manager:

Young Enterprise are looking for volunteers to support at Marple Hall High School with a fantastic programme that is giving the opportunity for a group of young people in Year 10 to set up and run their own business for a year.  

This programme is proven to improve the employability of the young people who take part.

As a business mentor you would be asked to attend the school once a week or fortnight for an hour (3pm – 4pm) and work with the students to guide them in running their business.  Training and support is provided by Young Enterprise.  As a business owner or someone who has worked in any industry for a few years, you would be the perfect candidate.  Giving skills and knowledge to the next generation, on your doorstep.

Benefits for Volunteers include:

  • Skills development such as facilitation, consulting, problem solving, communication, and project management.
  • Opportunity to further develop business knowledge whilst gaining experience within the public sector/UK education system
  • Opportunity to share skills and knowledge with the local community, and help develop the next generation of business leaders
  • Opportunity to develop local talent for the business in which they work
  • Raised profile within their organisation
  • Opportunity to make new contacts for your own business through the YE volunteer network and local events organised by local volunteer boards
