OUR 

SOCIAL IMPACT

The notion of giving back has become a cornerstone to the UCL Guild.

ON & UP PROGRAMME

Volunteers from UCL hosted interactive sessions with female students aged 14-18 from state-funded London schools, such as Aylward Academy and the Ark Globe Academy.  We organised sessions that included CV workshops and university application guidance.

The On & Up Programme was a Women in Finance and Guild initiative.

NEW HORIZON YOUTH CENTRE

The NHYC partnership has been a huge step forward for the Investment Society and the Guild this year as we have established ourselves as the pioneer career society that has extended our reach externally to create a social impact in the wider community. The objective of the partnership was to create a framework of support and to co-empower London youth to create a brighter future for the homeless members of NHYC.

 

We conducted biweekly one-on-one sessions with 3-4 committee volunteers per session where we provided guidance on writing CVs, tailoring cover letters, job applications and mock interview practice.
