Volunteering is the most effective way for businesses to support young people's learning and development.
My Future My Choice provides volunteering programmes to schools and businesses who want to work together to embed practical activities that contextualise learning into a school’s curriculum.
We offer a range of activities that provide a clear framework for business engagement with straightforward logistics that are not dependent on a laborious set up. Our volunteering programmes enhance business reputation internally as well as in the community. They aid recruitment, motivate staff and develop staff skills.
We want businesses to build a relationship with a school to build efficiency and effectiveness through activities that repeat annually.
We help business have a measurable impact on young people's development. Businesses get feedback on the impact of their support that meets their CSR objectives. Our programmes have been devised by businesses working with schools and we continue to make improvements based on feedback from businesses, schools and young people.
We also offer short training packages to help businesses enhance their CSR volunteering programme for education. These cover the use of specific programmes, setting up a general bank of resources for employees to use, working with schools and safe guarding for staff and children.
Training is designed to help businesses enjoy supporting young people's learning. Training can also be used by HR departments to make volunteering with young people something that develops employee’s management, communication, teambuilding and leadership skills.
Our STEM activities use the strap line, “Teams Make Science and Engineering Work” and volunteers will gain insight into how to improve a team’s function. The school setting is ideal for reviewing practice and proving theories outlined in a training session.
