Youth Futures Foundation

Youth Futures Foundation

Youth Futures Foundation is a newly endowed independent organisation set up to address the complex social issue of youth unemployment.

Our vision is that all young people regardless of background should have the support and opportunities to fulfil their potential. Our mission is to improve the employment outcomes of diverse young people. We will address ethnic and class disparities in youth unemployment and focus on young people with multiple barriers preventing their participation in fulfilling employment.

We look forward to collaborating  with employers, private, public and voluntary sector organisations to find solutions that work backed up by rigorously  assessed evidence.  Our dormant assets endowment gives us a unique opportunity to tackle an issue that has been stubbornly difficult to overcome and harness the huge potential young people have.

Join us on 21 April for the launch event on our upcoming research paper: ‘Navigating the labyrinth’ – a comprehensive study on how socio-economic background shapes career #progression within the Civil Service, with key learnings for employers. Sign up to attend here ➡ https://lnkd.in/dUJ46Yr

Led by our Commissioner, Sam Freidman, the report sparks discussion about the unwritten rules to progression. It’s an example of the UK Civil Service taking the lead on #SocialMobility; acknowledging what more needs to be done and showing others how they can follow suit.

At the #LaunchEvent we’ll discuss the findings of the report and what it means for social mobility.

The event will be chaired by Sandra M Wallace, interim Co-Chair, Social Mobility Commission. Joining her on the #panel is:

• Professor Sam Freidman, Social Mobility Commission
• Nik Miller, Bridge Group
• Louise Ashley, Royal Holloway, University of London
• Dr Dave O’Brien, The University of Edinburgh
• Bernadette Kelly, Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom and Social Mobility Champion in the Civil Service
• Alex Thomas, Institute for Government

See you there!
