Welcome to Young Enterprise in the South East. A region with more business start-ups and investment in services than anywhere else in the UK. Our committed team works in partnership with local schools, businesses and volunteers to inspire and equip thousands of young people each year to learn and succeed through enterprise. Together we ensure that young people grow up with the life skills, knowledge and confidence they need to succeed in the changing world of work.

Our region covers: Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Jersey and Guensey

In 2016-17 more than 10,000 young people took part in our programmes in the South East region from more than 220 education centres with more than 500 volunteers helping to guide and inspire them.


South East Company Programme Finalists 2018

A team of students from Jersey College for Girls won the 2018 regional title for Best Student Company in the North West. The regional final celebrated the young people who set up and ran student companies over an academic year as part of the HSBC supported Young Enterprise Company Programme.

The team then went on to represent the South East at the UK Company of the Year final

The regional winning team ‘To Be Jersey’  created a high quality flip calendar and hardback recipe book with recipes donated from local Jersey restaurants and businesses.
