Youth charities join forces to solve the biggest post-pandemic barriers for young people


SOCIAL mobility charities Speakers for Schools, UK Youth and Young Enterprise have joined forces to solve the biggest post-pandemic barriers facing young people.


They are launching Youth Card, a free app that places career preparing opportunities directly into the hands of young people across the UK.


The app aggregates the three charities’ own services, including:

  • Access to the UK Youth network (currently standing at over 7000 youth organisations, providing youth work, outdoor learning and skills development activities.)

  • Young Enterprise’s financial and enterprise programmes to develop skills, confidence and enterprising mindsets that help break down barriers to social mobility.

  • Speakers for Schools’ career programmes, connecting disadvantaged young people to sector leaders through inspirational talks and high-quality work experience opportunities with almost 700 employers.
