Be the Change is an inspirational initiative for young people who are disengaged with their education or lack confidence in their own abilities. The programme focuses on happiness, confidence, hope, relationships and employability and, through a series of conferences, workshops, 1:1 sessions and workplace visits, encourages students to identify their personal barriers to success, before helping them find ways of overcoming them.

Working in partnership with businesses, Be the Change helps open young people’s eyes to the world of work and the wealth of possibilities and career opportunities in their hometown and beyond. Be the Change provides the perfect opportunity for businesses to engage with their future workforce, building awareness of their employer brand amongst young people in their local area and providing an innovative way of providing fulfilling and meaningful personal development opportunities for their employees.

Don't just take our word for it

Be the Change is a great programme that all students of this age should be able to experience! The changes I witnessed in a large number of the students from the start of the programme to the end were absolutely staggering!! I also feel that this has provided me personally a unique opportunity to grow and develop my own skills. - Erica Moore

This is a fantastic opportunity for both students and mentors. Thank you for the opportunity as I have definitely made changes myself thanks to the programme - Jennie Cunliffe
