Youth Conference: Curriculum for Life

We had a brilliant time today running SHYC’s first ever Youth Conference on Curriculum for Life. It was amazing to hear all the positive feedback and very inspiring to hear from our wide range of speakers including HireHigher, Royal Holloway, Camberley and District Job Club, University of Surrey and more. Thank you so much to Gordon’s School, all our speakers, Camfest, and of course the #iwill fund for making events like this a possibility. We hope to see other boroughs following in our footsteps and inspiring their young people to start reaching out for opportunities in life. If you are interested in seeing what went on at the event, check out our YouTube channel for some clips taken from the livestream.
