As the organisation nears its fifth year anniversary we wanted to look back at some of our defining moments and hear from key people who have helped make Students4Students a success.
Our initial blog is from James who was the first person to join the organisation. He helped shape the Oxford branch, acted as our first Tutor Liaison Officer and was then a trustee for three years. James was instrumental in establishing the Students4Students model. After five years of support James' has recently decided to take a step back whilst he focuses on his career as a secondary school teacher in South England. We wish him all the best and know that he will do a fantastic job!
When I responded to an e-mail looking for help setting up an education charity, I wasn’t really sure what would come of it.
Now, almost 5 years on, I look back with pride on all that Students4Students has achieved What started as a small group undergrads trying to use their privileged education to make a difference has become a national charity with a bright future bringing help and support to children at a crucial point in their development.
As I step away from the charity after so many years, serving first as the Tutor Liaison Officer and later as a Trustee, I know that I leave it in a strong position and safe hands. I can only thank all of our volunteers, our Trustees, and Alex and Will in particular for the opportunity that they have given me to play my part in it.
