Support young people this International Youth Day

This International Youth Day, your donations could help a young person gain the vital skills they need to live, learn and earn.

TEXT 'YOUTH' £3, £5 or £10 to 70140

This International Youth Day the theme is transforming education - something that we have been passionate about for years since establishing secondary and alternative education programmes to enable young people to fulfil their potential and develop skills for life.

Our latest Youth Index survey highlights the importance of access to education showing that young people who are not in education, employment or training have lower levels of self-confidence and happiness. We firmly believe that when equipped with the necessary skills every young person can succeed - but we need your help.

A third of school leavers still do not achieve five A*-C grade GCSEs and more than half of young people in Scotland do not achieve 5 National Fives. The situation is even worse for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are far more likely to fail to achieve at these levels than their peers.

Last year, our Mosaic and Achieve programmes supported 20,760 young people to build their aspirations and thrive in education. With your support, we can exapnd out network of schools and committed mentors so our programmes can help even more young people to achieve at school.
