VICTA is looking for its next wave of
VICTA Young Ambassadors

Our Young Ambassadors Programme is a volunteering opportunity for young adults aged 18 to 29 years who are blind or partially sighted shaped around employability with projects designed to strengthen key skills and build business understanding, all supported with bespoke mentoring.

We are looking to appoint up to six Young Ambassadors who will be expected to attend the VICTA office in Milton Keynes for four days during a one year term starting in mid September.

Our aim is to provide our Young Ambassadors with a meaningful and challenging but fun volunteering experience that will develop invaluable leadership skills and increase confidence enhancing future prospects. Throughout the programme, we will work with each Young Ambassador to show how their learning and newly acquired skills can translate into a strengthened CV, job application or personal statement.

Further details can be found on the following downloadable information sheet:

If you have read the downloadable information sheet and you think this opportunity might be of interest, please send us an up-to-date copy of your CV together with a short covering letter explaining how you believe you would benefit from the Programme and what you can bring to the STRiVE editorial team.

You can find out more about STRiVE, the e-magazine produced by the VICTA Young Ambassador team here >

VICTA Young Ambassadors Programme Manager, 5 Douglas House, 32-34 Simpson Road, Milton Keynes, MK1 1BA.
