xl clubs

Prince's Trust xl clubs are for young people aged 13 – 19. These informal clubs can support you in developing the skills and confidence needed to progress into a positive future.

A Prince's Trust xl club will provide you with the opportunity to learn new skills and develop your confidence, making learning accessible, useful and interesting.

With us you could have fun, try new activities and learn the skills you need to help finish your education, go to college or get a job. The clubs follow an informal programme, which will provide you with the chance to get involved in five different activity areas:

  • You're in the Team: work as a team with a small group of people, make friends and share experiences 
  • Doing my Bit: discover what it is in your community that you want to change, learn how to take action and do your bit
  • This is the Business: test out your creative and enterprise skills and work on a project that will allow you to take risks, lead a team and make a profit 
  • The World of Work: find out what kind of work is out there for you, and get information about what you need to do to put yourself in the best position to get the job you want 
  • Over to You: your chance to practise your favourite activity or try something completely new, from playing sport to cooking a two-course meal
The Prince’s Trust has helped me make a better life for myself.  If I hadn’t joined the xl club, I wouldn’t have found a job or believed in myself enough to plan for my future. They gave me support when I needed it most.
