Get Involved – #BeInspired to be part of your community

Since 2010, Inspired Youth has been running projects to encourage the business community to support our work inspiring the next generation.  From a few hours judging at an enterprise day, so supporting longer term mentoring projects, local businesses have been part of our journey.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of organisations from small sole traders, to national and international businesses with a local presence, every hour of contribution has helped inspire young people.

With the number of activities we run, there is always something to get involved in and your connection with the projects can be that it is your local school, your old school, your sector, that you connect with the male/female mentoring projects, or that you purely want to give back to your local community.

But what is really important to us is one of our founding principles.  That your involvement is for ‘MUTUAL BENEFIT – NOT FOR CHARITY’.  It is really important to us that you gain from the experience of being involved for you and your business, as well as valuing your contribution.
