The whole CLA experience was nothing short of life-changing for Kira. "It helped me understand what I wanted to do in the future, and has given me experience and skills I can use when preparing for job interviews. I've now got relevant and meaningful experience that I can draw upon."
On top of this, CLA has re-energised Kira's ambition to create change. "The experience demonstrated to me how policy activism does matter. It's important to think about how we apply this in the communities we operate in."

Student Board Bank is a collaboration between King's and KCLSU. It supports students to become trustees in order to address the under-representation of young people on charity boards. Board Bank also offers students the opportunity to upskill and make a significant contribution to society through bespoke information sessions, training and a Trustee Fair, where students have the chance to meet charities interested in appointing students to their boards. Another Board Bank programme is planned for 2020/21.
