About this Event
We present to you the Aim High Careers Fair, supported by the National Lottery Community Fund and designed for you by Babbasa's Youth Ambassadors, a group of dedicated 16-30 year olds wanting to remove barriers to opportunities for other young people from low income and ethnic minority backgrounds.
At Babbasa, we hold a vision for Bristol that every young person is able to reach their full potential regardless of their upbringing. We have tasked our Youth Ambassadors with creating an event that enhances the opportunities and insights of young
What To Expect
