Objectives

I Can Be aims to break down barriers to opportunity for children and young people. I Can Be is a Registered Charity in England and Wales (Number 1188905) and a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).

Our core programme introduces primary school aged children to the world of work, broadening their horizons and helping them to discover the breadth of opportunity around them.

Activities

Run through primary schools, currently our core programme gives 7- and 8-year-old girls the opportunity to meet and interview a wide range of women to find out about their jobs, via live online ‘virtual visits’.

Focusing on primary schools with cohorts of pupils experiencing above average levels of disadvantage, I Can Be is enabling girls to explore jobs they otherwise may not be exposed to, building their curiosity and confidence along the way.
