Formally launched in 2015 to extend the success of The Prince’s Trust, Prince’s Trust International works in partnership with governments, not for profit organisations and businesses around the world to tackle youth disengagement and unemployment. Our programmes inspire and ultimately support young people aged 11 to 30 to move into work, education or training.
By sharing best practice models and tailoring the proven programmes of The Prince’s Trust, Prince’s Trust International seeks to increase and add to the impact of organisations that share our aims and seek our help.
We support and collaborate with local delivery partners to help cement local relationships and allow the sharing of best practice through our growing international network, ensuring programme sustainability and ongoing support for young people worldwide.
Speaking at the formal launch of Prince’s Trust International in Malta, during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, HRH The Prince of Wales said:
“It makes me enormously proud to think that the small project that we launched in 1976 has grown to the extent that we can now offer support and assistance to people around the world.”
We aim to help young people around the world into work, education or training.
We operate in a range of countries which face the huge challenge of getting young people into work, education or training.
We work with governments, not for profit organisations and businesses around the world to help young people build on their self-confidence and skills, increasing employability and enabling young people to reach their true potential.
We build on the extraordinary success of The Prince’s Trust, the leading youth charity helping disadvantaged young people in the UK.
Our ambition is to make a meaningful difference in countries across the world.
