Give an hour is a campaign asking for those who work for, or own small or medium sized businesses to inspire and support young people in local schools and colleges.  This can be done by sharing their unique stories and knowledge of the industry they work in and the skills they use day to day.

The Careers and Enterprise Company is working with Local Enterprise Partnerships, industry bodies and business bodies, to attract more SME’s to get involved.  They are being asked to support the young people in their community by inviting them to give an hour to support careers activities in schools and colleges.

Interactions with people from business and industry can have a big impact on the future career choices that a young person makes.

The Give an hour campaign aims to introduce young people to a wider variety of options and careers experiences.
