The vulnerable youths that are at risk of being left behind
Here’s how William Fry can help us change this story…
Help us change the lives and futures of a generation of young people
Specifically, your funding would:
As part of our charity partnership with William Fry, we would envision leaning into the support and expertise of your team by creating a work experience programme.
We are initially proposing a one-day event that all members of your firm would be involved in. The Irish Youth Foundation will liaise with our network of youth workers and projects nationwide, to bring young people aged 14-18 years to the William Fry office for a day of exposure to the corporate world. Young people will learn about all opportunities available within the company – administration and support roles, trainee roles, senior management roles etc.
We envision a firm wide day of engagement where all members of your team are available to welcome and educate these young people. For those young people who are keen to learn more, there is the potential of a slightly longer experience, with a one week or two week work experience programme that the IYF team will support in rolling out.
We would like to offer further support to the database of over 850 organisations that the IYF is connected with nationwide by offering workshops in a range of areas where the William Fry team have expertise:
We are asking the William Fry team to donate 2 hours of their time to the relevant workshops and support the organisations nationwide who need your insights and guidance.
There will also be opportunities for further direct engagement with these organisations if your schedule allows.
