YOUNG ENTERPRISE

Young Enterprise is the UK's leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills.

We believe that the potential of the UK's young people is unlimited, and an academic education on its own is not enough. Our mission is to empower young people to discover, develop and celebrate their skills and potential.

We work directly with young people, their teachers and parents, businesses and influencers to build a successful and sustainable future for all young people and society at large. Through our hands-on employability and financial education programmes and resources and teacher training, we want to eradicate youth unemployment, help young people realise their potential beyond education and empower a generation to learn, to work and to live.
