Working Options in Education is a careers education programme developed by registered charity Monkey Business Foundation. We provide all our services to sixth form colleges and young people free of charge and rely on the funds we raise and our committed volunteers to deliver our sessions. There are several ways to get involved in our work.
Become a corporate partner
We offer a range of corporate partnership packages including exposure for your company at our annual fundraising events. Contact us to discuss opportunities.
Attend one of our fundraising events
Monkey Business Foundation runs two major fundraising events each year with proceeds split equally between the Working Options in Education programme and charity Grocery Aid.
- President’s Dinner
- Leadership Symposium (Nov 8th 2018)
Volunteer as a speaker or ambassador
Our motivation and information sessions in state sixth form colleges are led by speakers from industry. We’re always on the lookout for new volunteers (and volunteer ambassadors to chair our sessions) and welcome individuals from all levels and disciplines within the food, drink and retail industry.
Get in touch if you’re interested in joining us or you’d like us to run a lunchtime session on volunteering with us at your workplace.
Provide work experience for students
If your company is able to offer an environment where sixth form students or recent college leavers can get much needed work experience, please get in touch.
Fundraise for us
Whether you’re a company, a sixth form college or an individual please consider raising money for us so that we can reach more young people and help them to fulfil their potential. Could you nominate us for a Give as you Earn Scheme or as a Charity of the Year partner where you work?
