The Prince’s Trust, Wales
Wales is home to the UK’s highest population of ‘NEETS’ – young people who are not in employment, education or training. Many disadvantaged youth on the programme may have been in care, excluded from school or faced homelessness, mental health problems or been in trouble with the law.
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, The Prince’s Trust provides a full-time, three-month personal development course where students get involved with community projects and work experience placements. They receive tips on interview techniques and CV writing. They can also take a qualification, increasing their employability and preparing them for the next step.
Where they work
As The Prince’s Trust reaches its 40th anniversary, we’re funding its long-standing mission to help young people transform their lives. Boosting their confidence, motivation and know-how breaks down the barriers they face to success.
The Prince’s Trust runs a crucial ‘Team’ programme, which offers the unemployed a chance to gain skills and work opportunities. At least 75% of participants realise a positive outcome from the programme, whether it be finding work, improving their education and training or securing volunteering roles. With our support, 897 young people will benefit from the programme over three years.Visit Website
