Corporate Volunteer Information

The ROAR Challenge is a global learning enrichment opportunity offering structured workshops, direct links with business and an international aspect that stimulates students to apply their skills through global citizenship.

The ROAR Challenge is an extra-curricular programme, where students set up a social enterprise to raise much-needed funds for their partner students in rural India. All funds raised will support the education of thousands of students through the Yearn to Learn literacy intervention programme.

We need your help and expertise to partake in this fantastic initiative by supporting the creation of a profitable idea and building London students’ confidence, leadership and global awareness. We are looking for approximately 1 to 2 enthusiastic volunteers per workshop across 5 London schools on topics ranging from business plan creation to social enterprise.

Commitment can be anything from just a few hours for one workshop, right through to leading your team through 5 weeks of workshops, before pitching their social enterprise idea to Dragons Den. Not only will you be helping to unleash the potential of the next generation of global citizens, but also developing your own skills in leadership and communication.
