'Last school year we enabled 305 students to experience over 1500 work place experiences where they met mentors who helped broaden their horizons and raise their aspirations.

This year we hope to reach even more students across the region and whilst our ultimate aim is for the project to be self-sustainable there is still a shortfall this school year which means that we rely on donations such as yours to enable us to run the full programme and run it successfully.’
