You could inspire the next generation to DREAM BIG!

The PBP are looking for virtual volunteers:
  • It can just be for a one off 5 minute task, an hour workshop or a longer commitment- you decide!
  • For anyone in any stage of your career. If you have just started your first job or have been working for 2 years, sharing your story can help inspire the next generation.
  • From any industry. Providing children with a range of career journeys can help them see the variety of careers open to them.
  • We can help make your idea a reality! If you have an idea for a session. let us know and we can help develop it to be delivered in schools.
