Are you looking to give back to the community and nurture the development of up and coming leaders?

Will you help us achieve our vision of a more meritocratic society in which talent, rather than socio-economic background, is the definitive determinant of access to high level employment?

If you believe in our cause we would truly value your support. As competition for jobs is ever-increasing in the current climate, now more than ever, the maxim, “It’s not what you know but who you know applies” Your willingness to invest your time, knowledge and experience into our students will be invaluable to them as they begin making their first forays into the world of work.
