Since 2012 the award-winning initiative Your Future, Your Ambition (YFYA) has worked to raise aspirations and encourage students from diverse backgrounds to engage with and consider careers within STEAM industries: Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Maths.
The format of their annual event is a highly effective approach of activities, insightful engagements, exposure to top STEAM organisations and learning experiences provided by specialists within the industry.
Following the success of our previous involvement, we were invited to take part in the 10th annual YFYA event in November 2021, running a virtual workshop, ‘Putting the Best You Forward,’ and hosting two mentoring sessions looking at Personal Branding and CV Writing & Interview Techniques.
The 2021 event delivered 50 virtual STEAM sessions with over 700 in attendance. Presenting from Venn Group were Elly Hanna and Ken Kittoe.
“I’m extremely passionate about educating the next generation and passing on information and expertise that I would love to have had when I was in their situation, and the Your Future, Your Ambition event was perfect for doing this. If we were able to inspire just one young person then that would be a personal win – I’m already looking forward to getting involved again next year.”

“Your Future, Your Ambition were delighted to have Venn Group facilitate workshops with young people from diverse backgrounds at our recent STEAM career event. The young people who took part asked lots of questions and the expertise of the team added real value to our event. We look forward to working with Venn Group in the near future.”
