Youth charity Prince’s Trust International is a champion of young people.
We work in partnership with organisations around the world to support young people aged 13-30 into work, education and training.
Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in November 2015, we share the successful programmes and expertise of The Prince’s Trust, which over the last 40 years has helped over 870,000 young people to transform their lives in the UK.
By working with local partners we create opportunities for young people in communities around the world to thrive and support them to build their skills and confidence. We achieve this by posting expert staff to assist with the delivery of initial pilot programmes, tailoring to the local need, and providing ongoing support to enable sustainable future delivery.
We aim to help young people to change their lives and get into work, education or training
We operate in countries around the world. We have pilot programmes underway and delivery partners rolling out our programmes in Australia, Canada, India, Barbados, Jordan, Pakistan and Malta.
We work to tackle youth unemployment and disengagement, working in partnership with the private sector, governments, and civil society in countries around the world, building upon the successful work of The Prince’s Trust in the UK.
Our ambition is to help young people around the world move into work, education or training.
Our heritage is to share the successful programmes and expertise of The Prince’s Trust in the UK to help tackle youth unemployment and disengagement around the world.
Prince’s Trust International has been created to enable The Trust to build on its success in the UK, addressing this demand for advice and expertise from governments and NGOs seeking to tackle youth unemployment around the world and to share their experience and expertise.
Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law. Three in four young people supported by The Trust move into work, education or training.
Since 1976 The Prince’s Trust has operated as a UK charity, supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable young people into education, employment or training.
In recent years, governments and agencies around the world have contacted The Trust, to see if our approach could benefit their situations. To facilitate this work, Prince’s Trust International was officially launched in 2015.
In 2017, The Prince’s Charities Australia became Prince’s Trust Australia. The organisation transforms lives and supports Australian communities to thrive through the inspiration, charitable commitment and philanthropic values of HRH The Prince of Wales.
