The College recently welcomed 30 Oxfordshire teenagers taking part in the Oxford Young Ambassadors programme, which aims to engage participants with higher and further education, and to empower young achievers to reach their full potential.
Oxford Young Ambassadors is a 3-year programme targeted at local teenagers who have little or no family history of higher education. Through the programme, Young Ambassadors aged between 13 and 15 attend a number of events throughout the academic year and work closely with Oxford student mentors. Typical activities include drama workshops and visits to Oxford colleges and local museums, as well as academic sessions designed to help with GCSE preparation. Participants are then encouraged to share the information they've been given with their peers and communities.
St Anne’s was the venue of choice for a series of presentations from the Young Ambassadors, who talked about their experiences to an audience of more than 100 fellow students and family members.
We hope that the Young Ambassadors are enjoying their time on the programme, and that all those who visited on Saturday had chance to fully experience the friendly and informal atmosphere here at St Anne’s. Our best wishes go to all those involved who will be taking their GCSEs in the coming year!
