Engaging youth
Changing lives

We’re all born to be something. But if ambition and purpose aren’t cultivated in the young, by the time they reach their 20s it can be too late.

There are nearly 1 million 16–24 year olds in the UK not in employment, education or training today because they didn’t get the support to help them find what they were born to be. We want to do something about this.

Our youth engagement programme Born to Be aims to break the cycle of youth unemployment through early intervention.

Born to Be helps young people reach their full potential by developing employability skills, confidence and aspirations.

We’re helping this generation become who they were born to be.
