Make a Difference Week (6 -10 July) – are you a group who could benefit from having 6th form students for a week?

January 22, 2020

OCVA, Larkmead School , Didcot Girls’ School,   St.Birinus School, and Bartholomew School are working in together on the ‘M.A.D’ (Make a Difference) project, which is aimed at getting their sixth form students involved with the charity and ‘not-for-profit’ sector. The scheme is also being supported by South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils in their area.

The proposed project will involve AS Level (Year 12) students from Larkmead School spending a week (6-10 July 2020) with your organisation as part of their ‘MAD’ (Make a Difference) Week. In the build up to their volunteering they will spend time developing links with your organisation, preparing for their MAD week and undertaking fundraising activity. The scheme has been successfully implemented by OCVA in partnership with other schools. To see some short video’s of MAD  projects in action please click here

This innovative project aims to target young people to get involved with their community at a young age and the hope is that their involvement will become a long-term commitment to your organisation

The idea is to link you with a very popular school, to encourage selected students to become champions of a local organisation.  We are convinced that this will raise the profile of your charity as there will be extensive publicity.  It will also be publicised to Councillors and local funders.

We are limiting this offer to a small, selected number of organisations that we believe will be able to benefit from the support that these students can bring them. We are looking for organisation based, or have opportunities in Abingdon North and South, Berinsfield and the surrounding area. However, we will consider other areas with good transport links for students.
