Mentors from both Kreston Reeves and Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust wrapped up their final Dare to Dream sessions in June after a brilliant few months partnering with local schools.
This year, Kreston Reeves supported students from Steyning Grammar School, while Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust partnered with students from Bohunt Worthing School to help boost their confidence and give them the tools they need to think positively about their futures and life after their studies.
Wendy Bamford, Audit Director at Kreston Reeves and one of the volunteers of this year’s Dare to Dream programme, commented: “We have built an on-going relationship with the Love Local Jobs Foundation and continue to take part and support their Dare to Dream programme every year, and every year we enjoy working with the students and getting to know them.
"The programme is a helpful scheme working to build the confidence of young people and preparing them with life-long skills. Both the students and staff leave having learnt so much!
"Our purpose, as a firm, is ‘to guide clients, colleagues and communities to a brighter future’ and is incredibly important to us. It is truly put into practise with our involvement in this programme – we aim to make a difference, helping to inform, guide and inspire the students involved”.
Thank you so much to all the mentors involved and everyone behind the scenes who helped support each of the programmes. We know a huge amount of work goes into it and we're truly grateful for your ongoing support.
Looking forward to next year!
