Young Enterprise is a national charity which motivates young people to succeed in the changing world of work by equipping them with the work skills, knowledge and confidence they need. We believe that the potential of the UK’s young people is unlimited, and an academic education on its own is not enough. We work directly with young people, teachers, parents, businesses and influencers to help build a successful and sustainable future for all young people and society at large. Through our hands-on employability, enterprise and financial education programmes, resources and teacher training, we aim to reduce youth unemployment, help young people realise their potential beyond education and empower a generation to learn, to work and to live.
