GivingTime’s purpose is to support young people to start their transition from education into the workplace with confidence and a clear sense of who they are and what matters to them.
GivingTime - getting young people excited about giving and learning for themselves
We do this by pairing young people with experienced coaches* who contribute their time for free and, in return, we ask the young people to contribute 4-5 volunteer hours to a cause that matters to them and their community.
Following a successful pilot where 20 young people were coached in 2015, GivingTime is looking to coach 100 young people from schools and universities in 2016, with the majority of those being in West London.
GivingTime is looking for coaches* to deliver 1-1 coaching to young people aged 15-21 on a voluntary basis. The coaching is 4 one hour sessions over 6-8 weeks in Jun & July 16 and will mainly take place at GSK’s global HQ in Brentford, West London. We are also looking into a remote coaching offering for coaches who are not based in West London.
The commitment from coaches is to attend a 1 hour briefing teleconference and then deliver 4 x one hour coaching sessions for each young person. This project is being conducted on a purely voluntary basis. It is anticipated that the hours of coaching delivered will count towards coaching accreditations. A learning from the pilot is the coaches would have appreciated some structured time to discuss what was coming up for them from the coaching sessions. To this end, we are planning to organise group supervision sessions for the coaches who participate in GivingTime.
This is a fantastic opportunity to work with young people and expand your coaching experience.
