Y Care International

The LSE Volunteer Centre is delighted to announce that Y Care International has signed up to the LSE Careers‘ patron scheme and will support London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) students by developing their involvement in local communities and support for good causes through the donation of their time.

They will be joining other LSE Careers patrons, through LSE Volunteer Centre, to promote volunteerism amongst students, share skills and advice about working in international development, and encourage a greater depth of understanding about the challenges facing vulnerable young people around the world.

While LSE students will be exposed to their work transforming young lives through careers’ fair, seminars and recruitment opportunities, Y Care International will enjoy increased engagement with the careers service, attend recruitment fairs, utilise the online CareerHub and meet academics at the university.

Y Care International CEO, Adam Leach, is excited about expanding the opportunities for young people with global interests. “We are thrilled to work with LSE and excited about how we can engage with students and alumni to expand our services. We are proud to be connected with LSE and other LSE patrons.”

Y Care International will also reach LSE students through David Coles, the LSE Volunteer Coordinator. He will keep us up to date with developments at the School, help with recruitment and meet regularly with Y Care International.

LSE Director and President, Professor Craig Calhoun, expects both the students and Y Care International to thrive from the partnership. “It’s great to have Y Care International join the patron group. The students at LSE not only have a lot to offer to the partnership, but also much to gain by having access to Y Care International’s expertise in international development.”

LSE Volunteer Coordinator, David Coles, welcomed Y Care International joining the patron scheme. “Y Care International offers many opportunities for young people to develop themselves whilst making a difference in their communities, and we are delighted to be able to share these with LSE students.”
