All pupils, every ambition - volunteer your skills

All pupils, every ambition is about getting people who care about giving all pupils the chance to reach their ambitions onto school boards.

You can help young people in your community succeed in all areas of life by volunteering as a governor. We’ll support you so you’re equipped to make a difference.

On average our governors dedicate 7 hours of their time a month and make a lasting impact within their communities.

Hear from governors we've placed


Elinor, London

I always say that my own education was the bedrock of who I am today. That’s partly why I wanted to be a governor – to give back, and to give other children the same opportunities I had. Everyone has to learn how to learn or we’re all going to struggle to exist in today’s society.

Scott, Bristol

Lots of people don’t know it’s something you can do if you’re not a parent. I hope that by answering their questions and giving reassurance, I can encourage people to volunteer their skills. Governing boards need people from all walks of life to give input.

Vijay, Hatfield

People often think I’m too young to be a governor. That’s what I thought too before I read up on the role. You just need to be willing to learn, collaborate and challenge.
