Young people leading the conversation on meaningful employment

Following the principle of “nothing about us without us”, youth voice is woven throughout every element of our work. Young people from marginalised backgrounds with lived experience of facing barriers to employment help shape our strategy and lead our mission.

Future Voices Digital is a space for young people to share their experiences and their perspectives on youth employment, setting the agenda and advocating for change.

Get involved

If you’re a young person aged 16-25 and living in England, we want to hear about your experiences or perspective on employment.

Meet Our Ambassadors

The Future Voices Group puts youth voice at the heart of our organisation, feeding into our vision and strategy and advocating for young people on the issue of employment.
