On Tuesday, 4th April, Reach Society once again showcased talent in the Black community in its 7th Careers Conference. The climax of the day was the announcement of the second full scholarship for a British young man of Caribbean background seeking entry to Brunel University London in September 2018; and the new summer internship at Grace Foods for a British young woman, of the same background, who is studying at Brunel University.
Young people, aged 14 to16, in Wolverhampton and nearby areas, and their parents and carers, had the opportunity to gain invaluable information, advice and guidance from roughly two dozen professionals, from the local Black community, and a similar number of local employers at the Employability Day held on 22 February, in the iconic Molineux stadium.
Our careers conference events are designed to create high value opportunities for young people to interact with role models from a wide range of professions, employers from all three sectors, and the chance to explore themes which are essential for their future development in our Perfect 10 workshops. In these distinct environments we aim to encourage, motivate and inspire our young people to develop their potential.
