Helping young people find meaningful work

Too many young people are unable to fulfil their aspirations and improve their lives because they lack the skills, confidence and support needed to progress into meaningful work.

Helping young people find meaningful work

Young people need to be better informed about vocational opportunities as well as the wider issue of better preparation for the world of work. And they need help choosing the most appropriate pathway.

If we can help schools, further education providers and future employers collaborate more, we can help young people prepare for employment and adulthood.

We fund projects that raise young people’s aspirations. We want them to find jobs they enjoy and that allow them to develop as individuals.

How can we improve young people’s job prospects?

Richard Reeve’s Foundation is keen to support programmes that:

  • Raise aspirations and self-confidence
  • Broaden perspectives on career paths
  • Help young people into work

What we want our funding to achieve

We provide grants to projects that help young people find sustainable employment. Our aim is not just jobs, but jobs that pay and offer retention, progression and more rewarding lives.

If your project is addressing these issues, we would like to hear from you.
