You clean your teeth using the running water in your bathroom. Have a cup of tea or coffee. You travel to work on a finely constructed network of roads or on a train or underground system. You park your car or grab another cup of coffee at the train station before heading to the office.

Through the activities in schools, work place visits and other events, volunteer Young Crossrail ambassadors aim to change perceptions of the engineering industry and encourage more young people, and particularly girls, to consider engineering and construction-related careers. Young Crossrail aligns with other programmes aimed at supporting young people into work and apprenticeships. Young Crossrail will help develop a pipeline of engineering and construction workers beyond the lifetime of the Crossrail project leaving a skills legacy for the future industry.
