Access was founded in February 2019 to provide career exposure opportunities for disadvantaged students. We target educational disadvantages in heartland schools, particularly students who are disadvantaged academically, socially or financially.
Disadvantaged students face various barriers to achieving their fullest potential, such as self-limiting mindsets and unequal access to social networks. As such, Access programmes are designed to expose, equip and empower our students to various career paths while connecting and building relationships between professionals and students. We seek to help disadvantaged students tackle various barriers by impacting them early on in their formative years. This is done through developing student’s self-confidence and drive to succeed, providing access to mentorship and opportunities through our network, and equipping students to seize and create opportunities for themselves.
