Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
WE is a family of organisations that makes doing good, doable. WE Schools is our unique active citizenship programme that challenges young people to identify the local and global issues that spark their passion and empowers them with the tools they need to take action. WE Schools prepares students for success in life. Through educational resources and social action campaigns, students further their curricular learning and develop the life skills for success. By coordinating their social action projects, students learn skills in leadership, communication and project management. WE Schools resources are free to schools and always evolving to keep the learning materials fresh and relevant.
