The Prince's Trust
Programme: Development & Impact Funding Received: Location: England-wide
The Prince’s Trust is a charity Charles, Prince of Wales, to help vulnerable young people get their lives on track. It supports 11 to 30-year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.
Their grant funding will support the delivery of the Future Skills Academy Alliance, an alliance that combines IT technical skills training with wraparound support and ringfenced employer vacancies. It will operate in the IT sector and work with five digital sector employers (Google, Facebook, Amazon Web Services, Service Now and UiPath) and their partners such as Generation and Coursera. The aim of this programme is to improve young people’s social mobility, bring them closer to the labour market and unlocked entrepreneurial potential, ultimately supporting them on a journey to economic independence.
