Spark an idea in a young person that takes their career in a new direction

Was there someone in your life that made a difference to the career choices you made? Could you be that someone for a young person today?


The Give an Hour campaign invites you to make a difference to the young people in your area by giving an hour of your time. We’d particularly like to hear from you if you own or work in a small or medium sized business.


In an hour you could change the course of a young person’s life just by sharing your story or helping them understand more about the world of work.


It might feel like an hour is too short to have a real impact, but we know from experience that an hour can create new perspectives and inspire new ideas. 


And sometimes that’s all that is needed. Just to hear someone’s career story or be able to speak to someone who can listen and give advice. Could you be that someone?


Here are some things that you can do in an hour


  • Make a difference by sharing your career story to a class or assembly.
  • Make a difference by playing a role in a business competition.
  • Make a difference by carrying out a mock interview or supporting a CV workshop.
  • Change a life by running a group session about your industry and the opportunities that exist.
  • Change a life by showing a young person how your role or business works through an in-class activity.
