CAMPAIGN OF THE MONTH: Young Enterprise helps to save a generation
The rising number of jobless youths in the UK has continued to plague the headlines over recent years, but behind the headline figures lays the reality that without the skills they need, some young people may never go to work.
Business education charity, Young Enterprise, launched a nationwide campaign to tackle youth unemployment. The “Save a lost generation” campaign challenged businesses to help give young people the skills required to get a job.
Although Young Enterprise introduced 227,000 students to business and entrepreneurship under the guidance of volunteers across 3500 companies last year, it continued to face difficulties with its public image of having a bias towards helping students in private education.
