Welcome to Young Enterprise in the East of England

A dynamic region creating a new generation of young entrepreneurs

Young Enterprise is the East of England region’s foremost business and enterprise education charity. We work hard to ensure that young people have the opportunity to develop attitudes and skills they need to succeed in education, in work and in life.

Every year we give more than 17,000 students and more than 700 volunteers a taste of the world of work and enterprise. Whether you are a teacher who needs some help delivering work-related education or a business person who wants to help prepare young people to prosper in tomorrow’s economy, Young Enterprise is the organisation for you.

At Young Enterprise East of England we cover six counties and 48 Local Authority areas. Our work extends from Kings Lynn in the north, Watford in the south through to Southend on Sea in the East.

We have a dynamic, professional and committed staff team of Young Enterprise Managers based in every county in the East of England. They manage the delivery of our educational programmes and our relationships with schools and volunteers. We also have more than 15 local boards of volunteers who help deliver our flagship Company Programme.

“It has been an excellent opportunity for 15 of our people who are keen to develop and progress, to push their boundaries and practice skills in a fresh environment. Their feedback has been positive.

“At AECOM we believe in young people as the lifeblood of the Company. Through Young Enterprise we see the very best in them; enthusiasm, commitment, team working, entrepreneurship and a sense of purpose.”
