‘I help to upskill young people in my local area by giving them an insight into my industry through volunteering as a Business Ambassador for EBP South.

Young people respond well to having real business people like myself come in to their school to support on events, talk to young people or run workshops.

The in-school events connect young people to the world of work which research has proven helps to raise their aspirations.

Young people benefit from engaging with organisations from a young age which is why EBP South provide a range of events for different ages that Business Ambassadors can support on from ‘Guess My Job’ days in primary school to ‘Speed Networking’ in secondary schools.

EBP South is an established charity that works with schools, businesses and volunteers across Hampshire, Isle of Wight and surrounding areas.
