Comments from current peer panel members

Sarah

"I joined the peer panel as it was an opportunity for me to express my experiences and frustrations with graduate roles and the application process. I hope to make a difference for future applicants"

Immanuel

"I really enjoy volunteering and empowering youth. I had various problems when applying for jobs and while I was volunteering for the Prince’s Trust I met other young people that had similar problems. Once I found out about Access Generation's Peer Panel I decided to join in to combat some of the barriers between employers and young people."
