UK Youth has been named as one of 18 grant winners in the Inclusive Economy Partnership by Nesta.
Alongside other organisations such as Founders4Schools and MyKindaFuture, UK Youth will use the funds for our Towards Employability training programme. The programme supports young people out of education, employment or training. Through the training they will identify their strengths, develop motivation and build capability to find and sustain work.
