Do you want to volunteer for a fantastic opportunity to help young inspire young people to enter the technology industries?

TeenTech is an award-winning charity, founded and run by TV Presenter and Honorary Graduate of the University Maggie Philbin. They support teenagers in gaining skills, experiences and connections to guide them into contemporary careers and give everyone the chance to reach their full potential. TeenTech is coming to Leicester this year, with more than 30 secondary and primary schools coming together for an exciting day of hands on challenges and experiments with leading science, technology and engineering companies at the Morningside Arena in Leicester on 24 October.

We are supporting the event and would like as many of our our students and staff to be involved as possible. If you are a student and volunteering TeenTech are happy to provide a reference for you after the event and with over 30 leading science and teach companies attending, it’s also a terrific networking opportunity.

Could you join us to help those young people gain the very most from the day?

Every group of ten students+ teacher will be assigned an industry/academic volunteer.

There is no prep required and there will be a full briefing at 8.30am in the Arena.
