PwC ambassadors ignite ‘Enfusiasm’ in London college students

ImageStaff from PwC’s London office are spending time with students from Oasis Park Shirley college in Croydon as part of the firm’s, ‘One Firm One May’ campaign.

‘One Firm One May’ saw PwC staff  join forces for a nationwide volunteering and fundraising event with a theme of ‘supporting social enterprise’ throughout the month of May. The aim of this event is to make a long-lasting impact in the local communities by sharing vital business skills with social entrepreneurs and fundraising to help the most disadvantaged people in society. 2013 will be the fourth year that PwC rallies employees from all over the UK to work to one goal – To spend time in the community and make a difference.

PwC Chairman Ian Powell said:

‘Our efforts to help the most vulnerable in our communities go beyond a month of concentrated support, but we hope that by running a focused event throughout May we can highlight what a difference sharing some of the skills we use in our everyday work can make to the future prospects of a social enterprise and those members of society that they support.’

After being impressed by their approach to igniting the ‘intrapreneur’ in young British people PwC associate, Aysegul Kazdal elected to work with the careers Social Enterprise Enfuse Youth CIC. Kazdal has organised for a group of volunteer ambassadors to support the work of Enfuse Youth through a day’s volunteering at Oasis Academy Shirley Park to share their insights on study, work and the world of jobs and careers.

Enfuse Youth have promoted the term ‘intrapreneur’ based on management consultant Gifford Pinchots’ term for individuals within large corporations taking direct responsibility for generating innovative ideas. 

Enfuse Youth founder, Andre Campbell, said:

“We were delighted when PwC contacted us. It’s really important that young people are shown clear routes to the intrapreneur in them, and that they stop second guessing their careers. Our PwC ambassadors are a great example of how you can do that.”

Director of Work Related Learning from Oasis Academy Shirley Park, Michelle Gibbins said:

“As a large academy we are forever trying to help students gain valuable skills which they can take with them into a work place. Many students are unaware of the importance of developing  these skills and many are shocked at the reality of being out of the security of the academy to being alone in the big wide world. Any help we can offer students to succeed is an absolute must”

Update Enfuse London Campaign

Progress on the Enfuse London Campaign has been brilliant with over 700 Young Londoner ‘enfused’ on the advice and interactive workshop which enabled them to be aware of the expectations of the work environment and some practical steps they must take to turn what they love into what they do for the next half a century! More importantly we gave them the opportunities to take action today

Making The Grade

9/10 is the average score for the Enfuse London Workshops. A student from St. Mary’s High School said

“This workshops has changed my life. I’m taking the opportunity to create my own future now!”

This Week’s Workshop

This week will see us going into Prendergast-Ladywell Fields College to deliver the final Enfuse London Workshop before the Enfuse London Conference.

We will have the amazing founder of Carthrottle.com Adnan Ebrahim speaking about his career journey so far and planning a secret interactive career challenge.

Maybe he’ll bring a new car into the playground?

Enfuse London Conference

In late April we will be delivering the Enfuse London Conference for 500 young people to put the questions they want answered to employers and influential figures. The event coincides with the launch of the  ‘National Career Service’ and provides an opportunity for the Minsters to tell us the steps taken thus far but then how they can listen to young people and act upon their views.

We are joined in delivering this high impact event by ‘The Challenge’ , Eventbrite and The Guardian. 

We’ll post the link to register young people 13-18 here shortly.

Stayed Tuned. Stay Enfused!!

Our vision is of a society that promotes and protects good mental health for all children and young people. A society where children’s views are respected and they are loved, safe and enjoy life.

MISSION

  • To improve life chances for children and young people at risk of and experiencing difficulties with mental and emotional health
  • To achieve better outcomes for parents and families who engage with children’s mental health services
  • To promote the good mental health and emotional well-being of all children

VALUES

  • We are committed to promoting children’s mental health. We work as one integrated organisation where staff contribute their ideas actively. We work effectively in partnership with other charities and agencies and learn from good practice.
  • The needs and experiences of children and young people in mental distress drive our work and we make sure their voice is heard by those who influence change.
  • Our independence gives us the freedom to stand up and speak out on the issues that affect children and young people’s daily lives and the concerns of parents and families caring for their children in today’s pressurised and stressful world.
