In partnership with Young Enterprise, Young Entrepreneurs teaches teenagers how to set up and run a business, developing the skills to succeed in the workplace.
Young Entrepreneurs gives young people the chance to learn about business in practice.
The programme is aimed at 14–19 year olds in inner city schools who are at risk of underachieving in education. Groups of students form and run small companies to make and sell a product or service of their choice.
Over the course of a year they experience everything to do with running a business, from product development to board meetings and accounts.
Young Entrepreneurs improves the attendance and attainment of students. It also encourages them to have ambitions for the future.
Deutsche Bank volunteers support the programme by mentoring and advising students on aspects of business.
Over 8,000 students from 130 inner city schools in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Glasgow have taken part in Young Entrepreneurs since 2008.
