support our work


ORT JUMP is ORT UK’s flagship domestic project.

A mentoring programme for students in their first year of sixth form (Year 12), ORT JUMP is designed to help bridge the gap between school and the workplace. Established in 2009 by Julia Alberga, with support from World ORT, ORT JUMP is now working with over 250 students across 11 schools. Mentors from a wide range of industries, meet with their mentees five times over the duration of the academic year, to discuss topics such as qualifications and career paths, working hours, essential skills and training. Many of our students find work experience and acceptance onto corporate schemes through the programme.


Professional Women’s Network (PWN)

2016 saw the launch of the Professional Women’s Network, which brings together women from different professional backgrounds and provides a space for networking.

We provide opportunities to hear guest speakers, with past subjects including, ‘What the World of Business can Learn from Religion,’ ‘Breaking the Glass Ceiling – Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace,’ and ‘How to Survive and Thrive: Dealing with Workplace Stress.’
