The Social Mobility Foundation supports ambitious young people from less-privileged backgrounds to access top universities and careers. They run completely free of charge programmes featuring mentoring, internships with top companies, university application support, as well as professional development and skills workshops for high achieving Year 12s across the UK. The charity provides support in 11 professional sectors, including Law, Medicine and Politics. Support continues throughout university to help young people obtain graduate jobs.
The SMF is also running entirely free residentials for Year 12 students across the UK interested in Accountancy, Banking & Finance, Engineering, Law and Medicine. Students undertake a one-two week internship with the host organisation and take part in fun evening and weekend activities. They also receive advice sessions, opportunities to build professional skills and a dedicated mentor before and after the internship.
