There are over 1.2 billion young people around the world, each with their own dream of how they want to realise their individual potential. But what happens when young people lack access to the skills needed to achieve their ambitions?
At Barclays, we want to help the next generation achieve their ambitions through our 5 Million Young Futures commitment. Young people are our future colleagues, customers and clients; our future neighbours, small business owners and government leaders. Helping them achieve their ambitions is the right thing to do – it’s critical to the long-term success of our business and the world we live in.
Through programmes focused on enterprise, employability and financial skills, we’re giving millions a platform to achieve their goals, build their own businesses, get jobs and become financially independent. With a global network of thousands of colleagues in 50 countries, we can use our skills and experience as a bank to achieve a positive impact beyond a financial contribution.
