Southwark Education Business Alliance


What they do: 

Southwark Education Business Alliance connects schools and businesses to deliver engaging work-related learning projects, helping to raise the aspirations and skills of local young people.

They often work with young people in disadvantaged areas of London, who often do not have the social connections  

Southwark Education Business Alliance’s projects include work experience, mentoring, in-school workshops, enterprise projects, business visits, careers presentations/assemblies, virtual workshops, and an annual careers fair. 


How you can help: 

  • One-off team volunteering
  • Regular/ongoing volunteering
  • Fundraising
  • Skills sharing
  • Resource sharing

Volunteers are central to Southwark Education Business Alliance’s work.  Their team can work with your business to develop new and exciting ways to engage with young people.  As a business, you can offer work placements, mentoring opportunities, support for enterprise projects or get involved in their careers fair to help young people learn about your business and sector. 

Individuals can also volunteer, as a mentor or by supporting in-school workshops, giving talks about their career and experiences of work, or helping young people develop the skills and confidence they need for their futures.
