Youth Employment UK CIC
Youth Employment UK was set up to support all of those working in the youth employment space, including young people who we feel should be at the heart of the work taking place in this sector.
Our key objectives are:
- To provide a platform for young people to have a voice on youth employment issues that affect them.
- To empower young people to take control of their personal and professional development, and gain the skills employers want.
- To support organisaitons working in the youth employment space by providing an impartial platform for them to communicate, share best practice and network.
- To campaign and influence policy on the issues and barriers that affect our members.
Youth Employment UK now has a growing reach of 16-24 year olds who access our online platform and social community. We have also created a UK wide network of volunteer Youth Ambassadors who support the work we do in a number of ways. Our Ambassadors represent our young members at policy meetings, conferences and in community events.
In 2016 Youth Employment UK changed our youth membership offer to become the YEUK Young Professional. This enables all young people to develop the skills and behaviours employers want, and take ownership of their future.
We also launched a Corporate Ambassador Programme giving our Community Members an incredible opportunity to support and inspire a generation of young people.
Youth Employment UK has developed a unique Community Membership where organisations can network together, access support and share their own best practice and opportunities. Organisations who join Youth Employment UK must be committed to working to the principles of being a “Youth Friendly Employer”.
Expertise and Political Work
Youth Employment UK is the Secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Employment which meets monthly to discuss the issues of youth employment. Our Community and Young Members are all invited to attend these meetings.
Youth Employment UK also works closely with Department for Work and Pensions, Department for Education and Department for Business, with working links to the Cabinet Office and the Skills Funding Agency. Our CEO also sits on a number of expert panels which include two national sub-committees for the European Social Fund.
Youth Employment UK CIC is a not for profit organisation that relies on its members, sponsors and donors to ensure its sustainability, impartiality and independence.
