The Challenge

The Challenge, a national youth charity and the leading provider of the government’s National Citizen Service (NCS), have paid part-time summer jobs delivering Photography sessions to young people (15-17 years old), which may be relevant to members. They run this programme all over the UK and in all Boroughs of London including Bromley, Bexley, Lewisham, Greenwich, Croydon, Lambeth and Southwark and are now open for applications from members of our Club to learn about their photography practitioner opportunities for summer 2016. They are expanding as a charity and will be hiring 4,500 paid summer staff to lead, mentor and deliver sessions to our young people.

They find that going into organisations, universities and colleges and presenting to students or members the best way to spread the word about their roles. They would only need 5-10 minutes at the beginning of sessions to tell members about their opportunities.
