Your Future, Your Ambition

Your Future, Your Ambition was founded in 2011 with the aspiration of inspiring young people (ages 7 to 23 yrs) from diverse backgrounds into pursuing STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) based careers.

In 2012, along with the support of  14 organisations came together with the aspiration of inspiring young people (ages 7 to 23 yrs) from diverse backgrounds into pursuing STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) based careers and the Your Future, Your Ambition (YFYA) event was launched.

As YFYA contiunes with its annual event which provides younger age groups (7-16) with exciting and inspiring activities, whilst providing the older age groups (17+ to Graduates) with access to blue chip organisations through key workshops and exposure designed to provide the key tools top companies are looking for in respect to STEM based careers.

Each year the event aims to attract more companies in order to connect with more Schools, School leavers and Students. This will create a stronger and more binding link between education and industry.

In 2019 YFYA incorporated the Arts into the event theme and “Building STEAM Talent” commenced in order to attract, excite and inspire those attending in that what lies ahead are fantastic careers in STEAM based industries. The format of the 2020 event will follow the highly successful approach but in a virtual format, providing Activities, Exposure and Experiences from key companies and specialist organisations.

The Event History page provides a snapshot overview of the Your Future, Your Ambition journey to date.
