Growing happy workers
Evidence from delivering Career WorkOut sessions over three years (total sample of 1,795 volunteers) shows that 99% of all guests enjoyed their experience and 97% agree (and more than half strongly agree) “I now feel more positive about my work”. Not bad for one hour’s volunteering!
In the 2017-18 school year, 519 volunteers from 164 companies attended 147 Career WorkOut sessions, volunteering a total of 1,297 hours with 6,547 students aged 11-18 in 10 MK secondary schools (including Stephenson Academy) and 31 homeless job-seeking residents of MK YMCA. Also, 42 volunteers from 26 companies attended 13 Primary WorkOut sessions, volunteering a total of 92 hours with 876 pupils aged 9-11 in 13 MK primary schools.
