Friends of ELATT FAQ

A Friend of ELATT is an informal role with the aim of helping our students to become aware of the various opportunities in the world of work which they otherwise might not be have access to. 
We simply ask you to dedicate your time for a few hours each year, inspiring our students (whether online or at our centre) to inspire them, and helping to raise awareness about what we do amongst your associates and others. 

How do I become a Friend of ELATT?

We build our Friends of ELATT through our existing network and people who are already close to and supportive of our mission, values and our work.   
If you would like to get involved with ELATT, please find out about how you can help at our Supporters page.
