We need more non-white volunteers
In some Career WorkOut sessions in local schools, more than 50% of the students are non-white. Milton Keynes’ working population is 25% non-white. But rarely are more than 15% of our volunteers in Career WorkOut sessions non-white. Sometimes none are.
We are delighted to have more than 1,600 Worktree volunteers, representing hundreds of employers and job types across MK. They all have important stories to tell of their own experiences in employment. We don’t assume any volunteer is more or less valuable than another.
But we do appeal to all our volunteers for ideas how we can encourage more non-white volunteers to sign up. Can you introduce Worktree to a non-white worker who is not currently a volunteer and may be interested?
We want to provide today’s young people with a Worktree which reflects best the local working population they will soon join.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, tel 07962 838685, with your ideas.
