We are delighted to announce that EmployabilityUK has been named as The Youth Group’s official charity partner for 2021/2022.

EmployabilityUK exists to provide dedicated support to young people as they prepare to embark upon careers across a variety of industries.
We are working together to bring hope, skills, and opportunity to young people, aiming to provide Kickstart places for up to five thousand young people. Off to an already positive start, we are looking forward to working with The Youth Group to deliver the best possible Kickstart results for young people across the country.

EmployabilityUK thrives on partnerships to make a real difference to the prospects and opportunities for those embarking on their careers and this significant step will empower both organisations to achieve our ambitious goals.”
Jack Parsons, CEO of The Youth Group said:
“It’s such a privilege to have EmployabilityUK as our very first official charity partner. I’m really looking forward to working with them to bring forward the incredible opportunities of the Kickstart scheme, and help improve the odds for more young people during this pandemic.”
