At Founders4Schools, we continue on our mission to improve the ease with which young people are prepared for the future of work. This year, our fourth since developing the charity out of SVC2UK, we’ve announced new features and partnerships, and the spin-out of our award-winning work experience and internship placement service into an independent company called Workfinder.
The academic year 2018-2019 has been a momentous one for Founders4Schools. We’ve now facilitated over one million student-employer encounters UK-wide, connecting well over 300,000 young people with role models from the world of work to help them to build their own paths to success. From Aberdeen to Truro, Liverpool to Broadstairs, Founders4Schools gives educators access to local volunteers and the ability to create encounters in less than four minutes. It’s an amazing tool which significantly improves the productivity of educators in their quest to prepare young people for their lives ahead.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Founders4Schools’ partners, advisors, trustees and staff for working together to achieve these results: it’s a privilege to work with you.
Sherry Coutu CBE, Founder and Chair
