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.https://youthfuturesfoundation.org/

However, extra long-term resources will be key to the success of these schemes. They cannot just be a sticking plaster to address the immediate devastating impact of #COVID on #jobs and #training.”
He also emphasised the need to focus on #students from the most #disadvantaged backgrounds, who receive the least training as adults yet face more barriers.
