Bristol Works - When we all work together
With over 800 members in Bristol Green Capital Partnership, we have the power to add value and increase the life chances for young people in Bristol. By offering work experience opportunities, we can equip future generations with the passion and skills that will enable them to help create a more sustainable Bristol with a high quality of life for all.
Young adults who had four or more experiences of work while at school are five times more likely to engage in education, employment and training. They earn, on average, 16% more than their peers who had no such experiences. However, not all young people are given such opportunities.
We’re looking for members of the Partnership who are interested in making a strong and visible commitment to providing opportunities for young people, regardless of their background. This could involve a range of different activities, from hosting workshops and assemblies, offering mentorships and site visits, to work placements within organisations.
