Support us The Big Give Christmas Challenge Empower young people to shape their future Save the date - 30th November - 7th December! DONATE NOW! It’s no secret that the pandemic has caused devastation to millions of lives across the UK, but 16-24 year olds remain amongst those most impacted, and those already at socio-economic disadvantage are tackling even greater hurdles. As disruption continues, we need to take action. Youth unemployment has been anticipated to rise by 163%, yet less than half of secondary school, college and university students currently have access to careers support. The impacts of the pandemic will continue to affect the world of work for years to come, and young people will need support to re-adjust. That help comes from showing them the variety of careers that exist, the skills employers need, and how to find the jobs that their skills are best suited for. Together, we can build a brighter future for the ‘Lockdown Generation’. We know the significant impact positive role models can have on career success, with evidence showing that students who have four or more interactions with business role models are five times more likely to be in education, employment or training. At F4S we make it possible for all educators to empower young people through these encounters and bring careers education to life, raising their aspirations and giving them confidence in their future careers. One donation, twice the impact. Support F4S through the Big Give Christmas Challenge, and your donation will be doubled, meaning your support will have twice the impact. With your help, we can raise social mobility, inclusivity and equal access to prosperous careers, levelling the playing field for the young people who need us most. DONATE NOW!
