ABOUT US

Let’s face it. Recruiters get a bad press. But then, so do young people. So, we have decided to show the difference that we, as recruiters can and do make to people's lives – by helping them to find, gain and stay in work.

Youth unemployment is not inevitable. We are taking a practical and positive approach to a problem we can all help to solve.



OUR PURPOSE

To unite every recruiter to empower 71 million young people to #thrive, not just survive. One company, one recruiter and one young person at a time.

OUR VISION

To inspire recruiters to build the largest global youth employment foundation, dedicated to empowering young people to find, gain and stay in work.

OUR MISSION

To give young people and their employers the best possible chance of success and in doing so, empower young people to transform their lives.

HOW WE MEASURE SUCCESS

By the number of young people we support who find, gain and stay in work for at least twelve months.



WHAT WE DO

We provide practical and financial support for young people age 16-24 to find, gain and stay in work. We work with our recruitment and staffing company members, industry suppliers and networks to develop scalable solutions to tackle youth unemployment.



#THRIVE FUND

The money raised or donated by individuals and teams is spent directly on supporting young people into work.
