Who we help

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. We focus our efforts on those people who need our help the most.

Unemployed young people

We provide personal development opportunities for those with few or no qualifications, helping them to build their skills, confidence and motivation, and move onto employment..

Young people underachieving in education

To combat school-related challenges such as truancy, exclusions and poor performance, we run xl clubs in schools across the UK.

Young people leaving care

Approximately 8,000 young people leave care more vulnerable than most. They are more likely to have no qualifications or low basic skills, or be unemployed or homeless.

Young offenders and ex-offenders

According to a Home Office survey, 3.95% of the 16-25 population have offended. Our progammes can help offenders and ex-offenders to break the offending cycle and fulfil their aspirations. In some regions and countries we run a leaving prison mentoring project.
