'Give an hour' to help young people - Enterprise M3 appeal to businesses

In as little as an hour, you could change the course of a young person’s life just by sharing your story or helping them to understand more about the world of work.  
 
The Enterprise M3 'Give an hour' campaign invites you to make a difference to the young people in your area by giving as little as one hour of your time. We’d particularly like to hear from you if you own or work in a small or medium sized business. You can hear from some of the employers who are already engaging with young people in their local areas. 
 
It might feel like an hour is too short to have a real impact, but we know from experience that an hour can create new perspectives and inspire new ideas. Just to hear someone’s career story or be able to speak to someone who can listen and give advice. Could you be that someone?  
 
Enterprise M3 Senior Enterprise Coordinator, Tracey Tatam, said: “We are already aware of a gap between the skills of our young people, and those required by businesses in the Enterprise M3 area. By giving an hour of your time, you could inspire a young person to acquire these skills, supporting both the next generation and the local economy.  The Give an hour campaign is a great way to give something back to the community while inspiring the entrepreneurs and business leaders of the future.”
