Founders4Schools has impacted over 500,000 students across the UK, and we are committed to ensuring all young people, without exception, are informed and inspired to succeed in their transition from education to employment. But we need help to scale and ensure we remain free and accessible. So we are challenging CEOs from across the UK to go 'Back to School' for the day to inspire the students they will connect with as well as enabling us to reach thousands more by inviting sponsorship from their networks.
When? Any date throughout September to suit your calendar
Where? Any school you have a connection with; whether as alumni at their old senior school, a local senior school or one they are connected to via family or friends, or a school from the Founders4Schools can connect you with a local school to your home or office
What will the day look like? You will be involved in a timetable of lessons and challenges; a school assembly presentation, 'Dragons Den' pitch from students, Q&A lunch with students in the canteen, revisiting your most and least favourite lessons, ‘what I would tell my 15 year old self’ insights, and you may even want to present new business ideas for feedback from innovative young minds.
Why? Just one day out of the office may have a life-changing impact as you inspire and empower young lives. You will help students and educators understand what the world of work looks like, and share what employers are looking for from young new starters, whilst also gaining insight into the challenges and expectations of your future talent. Our team will support you through every step of the journey, from planning your day at school to raising awareness of your involvement in the event and supporting you in reaching your fundraising target
