Young Enterprise Scotland - Glasgow Volunteer Recruitment Open evening
Wed 29 March 2017, 17:30 – 21:00 BST
Young Enterprise Scotland’s well-known Company Programme is the ultimate business and enterprise experience for S5/S6 pupils in schools across Scotland. The pupils set-up and run their own company through the academic year with support from local business volunteers and Young Enterprise Scotland staff.
They develop a wide range of skills and receive an invaluable entrepreneurial experience. At the end of the academic year, the young companies compete on a local, regional, national and European level to be crowned Company of the Year.
Our Scottish Company of the Year winners of 2016 were Pure Chuffed from Lochend Community High School, Glasgow. Pure Chuffed crafted and sold a range of Glasgow-based jewellery as part of their Company Programme experience. Pure Chuffed won their local finals and then won the regional finals, winning the Scottish Company of the Year 2016 Award.
This year as well as showcasing our Company programme Finalists we are holding an open Volunteer Recruitment evening from 5.30pm until 6.15pm in advance of the Glasgow Company Programme Awards which runs from 6.15pm onwards.
If you would like to not only enjoy the awards evening and meet young people but would like to chat about becoming involved in one of our volunteer roles then please book a place here!
