Working Christians across the UK can now impact young people and influence the prosperity of their local communities through a new online initiative.
Growing Ambitions is an online broker of careers speakers for education – a database of speakers from over 800 different jobs and in every town in the UK. The idea behind the site is that Christians can volunteer to speak to young people and inspire them to aim higher.
Christian and communications professional turned social entrepreneur Sally Davis is founder and Managing Director. She was on the advisory board of the Christian Workplace Forum – now Transform Work UK - in its early days and is on the leadership team of Family Church in Portsmouth.
“As a Christian I see Growing Ambitions as the perfect tool for Christians to impact their communities in a meaningful and significant way. In our congregations we have many trained and professional people across the board who can now support their schools, colleges and local university without having to dedicate more than two hours in a whole year to it.”
Volunteers from all faith groups and cultural backgrounds are free to use the service.
