Can you be the next Social Apprentice?

May 25, 2011 at 3:05 pm 3 comments

ByMohammad Shakir The Apprentice is one of the more popular shows on television. 16 candidates head to London to battle out for a job with a six figure salary, or in the case of the current series, a £250,000 investment into a joint business venture between Lord Alan Sugar and the winner of the series. Imagine that level of investment in a social project which would work for society’s benefit! £250,000 can go towards a community run organisation that gives trainee chefs the opportunity to work in a restaurant or a development trust aiming to regenerate their local community through working with the private and public sector.

The so called “Social apprentice” will be a creative person who will change their life and others’ around him in real time and in tandem with the current finical burdens families and people of the UK go through in a daily basis.

In times of recession, having an idea or a product which can help you and people in your community can be like striking a gold mine by accident. Not only can it help your finances, you can get a sense of joy by helping yourself and others in your community.  This is unity as it should be and the giving back to your local community is a good starting point.

So if you are sitting in a comfy chair and watching tonight’s Apprentice on BBC 1, have think of what you can do being as Social Apprentice to help your community.  You never know, it could actually be you.   So, as Lord Sugar puts it after 12 weeks: You’re hired!

Get on your bike and get going!
