In The Know – Thinking about your future this September!
We hope that you are settling in nicely for the new school year. Now that the back to school rush is over, we want to tell you about a few clubs and extracurricular activities that your child can join to make the most out of their time and build a CV that stands out from among the crowd. These activities are for young people who want to start making choices about their goals and their future direction.
The UK Youth Parliament: The UK Youth Parliament provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 11 to 18 to make themselves heard so that they can bring about social change through events and campaigns. It has 369 Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) that are usually elected in annual youth elections throughout the UK. Any young person aged 11-18 can stand or vote. For more information on how to join and be heard, click here.
The Windsor Junior Fellowship Programme: The Junior Fellowship Programme strengthens academic and social capabilities and empowers participants to make choices about their goals and their future direction. Over a two-year period, through a combination of workshops, day trips and events, Year 10 students are able to develop their skills, networks and key capabilities. Applications are open this month and you can find out how to apply here.
Young Enterprise: Young Enterprise is an enterprise and financial education charity that provides programmes that impart practical ways for young people of all age groups to get a taste of the world of work and the excitement of running a business. The programme also enables young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed in the business world. Find out more about what they offer here.
We hope these opportunities help to get the ball rolling on reaching your aspirations. To find out about more great opportunities and events for young people, feel free to sign up to our newsletter. The GT Scholars programme wants to help young people aged 11-16 to achieve excellent grades and reach their future goals.
