The opportunity to sign up to participate in WOHAA 2011/2012 is very soon coming to a close. If you are interested in participating in WOHAA this year then be quick as the deadline to register a team is the 30th of November 2011.
The Wings of Hope team are still currently taking bookings to visit school assemblies up until the 30th of November. We will then be taking bookings for the next academic year. We would be delighted to come and tell students all about the Wings of Hope Achievement Award scheme (WOHAA) which is a completely FREE social enterprise scheme offered to students in years 9 – 13.
For all those participating, students form a team of up to 6 and are challenged to come up with different ideas to fundraise for the Wings of Hope – the more creative and innovative the better! We want students to think outside the box!
Students who participate will also get the opportunity to attend free industry skills workshops with our corporate partners. This will provide them with an insight into various industries whilst helping them think about different career paths. They are also given vital CV, application form and interview advice.
Teams are then shortlisted to present their achievements and projects at the House of Lords in front of a panel of esteemed judges, including Sir David Jason from Only Fools and Horses and Executive Directors from our corporate supporters.
Every student who participates is invited to our award ceremony at Wembley where they get to celebrate their achievements. This is where we also announce the winners of the 6 different categories. The prize that everyone has their eye on is first place as the overall winning team will have a once in a life time opportunity to go on an all expenses paid trip to India. This is something completely unique and will give the winners the opportunity to visit our project in action! The winners will experience the whole charitable process and see first hand where the money that they raised is spent. Other amazing prizes include exclusive work experience placements with our corporate partners.
Furthermore the scheme compliments the national curriculum as WOHAA fits in perfectly with Business and Enterprise, PSHE, citizenship, DofE volunteering, CAS element of the IB, the AQA Baccalaureate and much more!
So are you a teacher or student who wants us to visit your school? Why not contact us to book an assembly!
Are you a student who wants to sign up? Register now before it’s too late!
Remember that participating in WOHAA is completely FREE and you will not be charged for anything at any point.
