Catalyse Change will host its second annual ‘Catalyst Bootcamp’ in Bristol this summer. The three-day residential event is held at Bristol University on 1 – 3 August 2018, for girls and young women who want to be confident and resilient changemakers.
The transformational educational programme helps young females to:
Build their sustainability knowledge and the educational and career opportunities available
Builds understanding of your personality strengths and interests
Learn tools for improving confidence and resilience
Meet inspiring women working in the low-carbon economy and hear their stories
An opportunity to meet a mentor who will support your pathway into a Green Career.
The Catalyst Bootcamp is for young women who want to make a positive difference in the world but aren’t quite sure how to go about it.
“During the course of our 2017 Catalyst Bootcamp, we saw an increase from 54.5% to 100% in girls who identified themselves as having the potential to make a positive difference in the world – we think that’s pretty special.” Said organiser Traci Lewis.
In a fast changing job market, participants will benefit from training in the ‘softer’ but essential skills for employability, including; team working, problem solving and clearer communication. There will also be an opportunity for longer-term mentoring from inspiring women from different sustainability sectors, to provide additional support to help you achieve your goals.
Organiser Traci Lewis explains, ‘We are really excited to be hosting the Catalyst Bootcamp again at the beautiful Clifton Hill House, Bristol University student residence. The event provide a unique and inspiring learning opportunity for young women to get a taste of career opportunities and pathways in the Green or Low-Carbon economy and the inspiration and tools you need to succeed within it.’
There is also a competition running with opportunity for young women to win a free place by stating in no more than 100 words or with a 1-min video or image explain; ‘Why I Want to Be a Catalyst for Change’ #Catalyst4Change.
