Young Enterprise is the UK’s leading enterprise and financial education charity reaching over 250,000 young people every year.


What we do:

We make the connection between school and the world of work, enabling young people to develop the knowledge and attitudes they need to succeed, building on 8 key skills:

Communication, Confidence, Financial Capability, Initiative, Organisation, Problem-solving, Teamwork and Resilience.


What we offer:

We offer something for every year of education from our Primary Programmes to our Secondary Programmes (including our year-long Company Programme) to the university-level Start-up.

Every year we work with over 250,000 young people, support over 9,000 teachers in both enterprise and financial education, with the help of more than 7,000 volunteers and 3,500 businesses.


Our Impact:

Since we were established, over 4 million young people have taken part in Young Enterprise programmes in the UK. One million of these have run businesses for a year on our Company Programme. We take evaluation very seriously and that’s why we measure the impact of everything we do.
