About the Day of Service (DoS):
This year the focus is GCSE students (15/16 year olds) and their parents. There may be one or two who are at the start of A-levels but primarily we’ll be addressing students who are at the very beginning of their journey and may be the first people in their families to be considering education post-16. For those of you with no experience of UK state education, it was only two years ago that young people were required to remain in formal education or vocational training beyond GCSE (age 16).

The day kicks off at 9.30 for those you are able to help set up and take part in the first panel. The rest of the day proceeds as follows:

10.00-10.20 - Intro and dividing students into groups

10.20-11.20 - Panel 1 & Workshop 1

11.20-11.45 - Break 1 with Speed Networking & Parent Registration

11.45-12.45 - Panel 2 & Workshop 2

12.45-13.00 - Short Break & Prep for Plenary Session

13.00-13.30 - Plenary Session

13.30-14.00 - Informal Networking & Sandwiches

14.00 - Departure for IU leaders and students

14.00-15.00 - Clear-up & Debrief for YCL volunteers

These are the specific roles we need to fill:

We’re looking for a range of professions and career paths. The rough format will be that each participant will have 3-5 minutes to present his/her story and then the host for the panel will ask a question or two before opening it out to the students. If you are interested in being one the panelists, please email Margaret Glover (click) with the following information - Current Profession/Job, previous professions/volunteering/training of interest, availability for Panel 1 and/or 2

Panel Hosts 
We will need a host for each panel and the plenary session. The role is to keep things running to time and also to stimulate discussion if the students aren’t immediately responsive. Please email me with your availability.

Workshop Facilitators 
We’re particularly keen to recruit younger alums and people with experience of coaching, drama, writing and facilitation for the workshops. The focus will be on presentation skills, work experience letters and personal statements.

DoS & Networking Hosts
We’ll need people on the day to help register people as they arrive, serve refreshments and help run the networking sessions. If you’d prefer just to come by for an hour or so, that’s great. Please do let Margaret know closer to the time when you anticipate arriving!

PLEASE also REGISTER on the AYA site - www.yaledayofservice.org - and spread the word among the alums you know.
