How will Skillcity help?

It’s easy to host a visit

Skillcity will arrange everything for you, including addressing health and safety issues. We will help you come up with an activity plan and ensure that schools and young people are prepared for their trip.
1) Volunteering on our programs
2) Employee volunteering opportunities
We rely on employee volunteers to inspire and motivate the next generation. Our corporate volunteering opportunities in London schools and colleges help businesses to connect with and support local young people.

We welcome individual professionals or groups of employees from a wide range of industries. You don’t need experience of working with young people, just plenty of enthusiasm! We will provide briefings beforehand and support you on the day.
  1. Volunteering Opportunities in Primary Schools
  2. Volunteering in a Elementary School gives children an early understanding of work and opens their eyes to a world of opportunities.
  3. Volunteers visit schools to talk about their jobs, introduce pupils to their workplace, or take part in enterprise workshops.
  4. Volunteering opportunities in High Schools and Colleges
  5. Volunteering in a secondary school or college allows students to meet professionals from a wide range of sectors. This provides insight into different career paths and helps to prepare young people for the future.
  6. Volunteers introduce their careers to students and help them to understand the skills and qualities employers look for.

Opportunities include

  1. Take part in a Careers Carousel and explain your job and career path
  2. Present at an interview skills or CV building workshop
  3. Deliver a talk about your job to students studying related subjects
  4. Join an enterprise workshop and help students build their own business
Sessions run throughout the academic year and can take place over a few hours or whole school day. We will match you or your team to the most appropriate opportunities based on your location, availability and professional background.

What are the benefits of employee volunteering?

Corporate volunteering can help your company connect with the community, develop employees’ skills and enjoy time away from the office! Our volunteering opportunities require only a small time investment, ranging from a couple of hours to a school day, making it easy for individuals or organisations of any size to participate.
