Are you aged 16 to 18 looking for an experience that can help you stand out from the crowd?

Our Young Ambassadors Project offers you work experience with a difference. Not only will it give you the edge when applying for university or as you take your first step on to your career path; but it will also give you the feel-good factor as it involves giving back to the community as a volunteer for one of Essex’s largest charities.

what does being a young ambassador involve?

  • Community – Getting involved with your local community through volunteering is the perfect opportunity to learn vital skills, gain insight into possible careers and give back.

  • Experience – Gaining valuable experience can be difficult, especially if you are unsure what you want to do. Becoming a Young Ambassador allows you to try out a role that you may not have considered before.

  • Evolve – Learn new skills that will help with future university and job opportunities; from learning how to write a fantastic application letter and interviewing skills to building confidence and gaining knowledge about an area of industry.

you never know where your yap year will take you!
