Step into Days (In-Person)

Step into Days

Step into Days are an opportunity for you to open your doors to young people. It's a great way to invite young people into your businesses to gain an insight into how your organisation works, see behind the scenes and gain an understanding of your industry.

You can run activities or challenges as part of the day or just show students around. Many young people haven't been to a place of work before so just seeing different places of work can really help young people to gain an understanding of different work spaces.
