About us

Youth Futures Foundation is the national What Works Centre for youth employment. We want to remove the disparities in employment outcomes that exist for young people facing the greatest challenges helping them find and keep good quality jobs. We do this by undertaking high quality evaluations, building and sharing the evidence of what works, driving evidence-based change in policy and working with employers and practitioners to improve practice.

About Youth Futures Foundation

Everything we do is guided by robust evidence of what works to support young people from marginalised backgrounds into good jobs. We learn from the projects we fund and scale up that learning to drive genuine, long-lasting systemic change.

Our strategy

A society where all young people have equitable access to good quality jobs.

Our people

Our ability to deliver our objectives depends on our dedicated team. Our collective desire to help young people improve their life chances drives everything we do.
