Who we help
Around one in five young people in the UK are
not in work, education or training. We focus our efforts on
those people who need our help the most.
Unemployed young people
We provide personal development opportunities for those with few
or no qualifications, helping them to build their skills,
confidence and motivation, and move onto employment..
Young people underachieving in education
To combat school-related challenges such as truancy, exclusions
and poor performance, we run xl clubs
in schools across the UK.
Young people leaving care
Approximately 8,000 young people leave care more vulnerable than
most. They are more likely to have no qualifications or low basic
skills, or be unemployed or homeless.
Young offenders and ex-offenders
According to a Home Office survey, 3.95% of the 16-25 population
have offended. Our progammes can help offenders and
ex-offenders to break the offending cycle and fulfil
their aspirations. In some regions and countries we run a leaving
prison mentoring project.
