Prince’s Trust International was launched in 2015, at The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Malta. We are an independent charity, with HRH The Prince of Wales as its Founder and President. We support young people across the Commonwealth and additionally some other international countries.
Prince’s Trust International works with partners around the world to support young people on their journey from education to employment. This includes the posting of expert staff to assist with the delivery of Prince’s Trust programmes and the provision of ongoing support to ensure sustainability. We offer capacity-building support to partner charities and agencies.
Since 2015, Prince’s Trust International has worked in Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Greece, India, Jordan, Malta, New Zealand and Pakistan. We have supported over 10,000 young people across the world with 66% successfully entering work, education or training.
This is an exciting time for Prince’s Trust International as we prepare to implement our new five-year strategy, designed to help 100,000 young people over the next five years and raise £50 Million in order to transform their lives. As part of this strategy, we are planning to significantly grow delivery in existing locations to reach many more young people, and to proactively explore delivery in new countries and regions.
