The Brokerage celebrates Volunteers' Week
08 Jun 17

As we near the end of Volunteers' Week, we wanted to take a moment to thank our volunteers for providing 3,585 hours of volunteering over the past year! We wanted to let our volunteers know how much their time and effort means to The Brokerage and the students we work with.

Our programmes include, masterclasses, workshops, insight events and mentoring. Our volunteers’ insights are invaluable to the students involved. They open students’ eyes to a range of careers, provide advice on progression routes, tips on improving key employability skills and, not to mention, taking our students on some incredible tours of their spectacular offices!


The positive impact of our volunteers goes a long way in helping The Brokerage actualise the first part of its mission by raising the aspirations of young people from London’s state schools.

Students often state that the best part of their day was working with the volunteers. We are thankful for the enthusiastic volunteers who truly bring the activities to life.

The volunteers enjoy taking part in our programmes too!

100% of volunteers said they would recommend volunteering with The Brokerage to a colleague.

99% of volunteers said volunteering with The Brokerage was enjoyable or very enjoyable.

When asked what motivated them to work with The Brokerage, volunteers said:

I did a similar thing when I was 15 and found it inspirational.. It’s something I really believe in.

Having done previous workshops I would always volunteer.

The passionate attitude of staff and children.

Without our volunteers we wouldn’t get great feedback from our students such as this:

The best part of today was when we got to meet REAL lawyers and accountants and how we got to talk to them about their jobs!”

Thank you to all those who give up their time to volunteer with The Brokerage!
