Prince’s Trust International are delighted to share our second Impact Report covering the period from April 2021 to March 2022.
The pandemic continues to impact the countries we work in in various ways. Some delivery was able to return to face to face while some remains online. Despite the continued challenges bought by the pandemic, 77% of young people grew in confidence, 80% developed their communication skills and 75% improved their teamwork skills.
The report highlights how, together with our partners and volunteers, we were able to support 18,815 young people in 17 countries. This year saw Prince’s Trust International introduce more green and digital focused programmes. 73% of young people are interested in working in the green economy and 68% are keen to work in the digital economy.
Despite the impact on job markets around the world, 63% of young people on our employability programmes went into work, further education or training. Two-thirds of the young people we supported identified as female.
The challenges that young people face in regard to their education and employment continue. Prince’s Trust International remain committed to our mission of empowering young people to learn, earn and thrive and to contribute to the delivery of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We will continue to amplify youth voices to global decision makers as we collaborate to meet these goals.
