Young people are 20% of our population but 100% our future. Watch this video to find out more
We strongly believe that a young persons background shouldn’t determine your future and employers have a key role to play.
Research shows young people who have 4 or more employer encounters they are 86% less likely to not be in Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).
As well as changing the life chances of a young person your involvement helps strengthen the links between education and work, provides personal development opportunities for your people and creates a talent pipeline for your business.
In 2022 we have delivered the Levelling Up Futures in Sheffield programme. Delivering 124 in 2022 employer encounters in 15 school/colleges, 619 employees volunteered for 2,160 hours and supporting over 7,220 students.
