– personalised clothing, using text and images. “With more than 350,000
young people participating in its programmes, Young Enterprise is the
UK’s leading business and enterprise education charity. They deliver a
range of programmes in primary and secondary schools, colleges and
universities across the UK, which inspire and equip young people to
succeed through enterprise and ‘learning by doing’.

Young Enterprise programme is supported by a volunteer business
adviser, who brings the benefit of their knowledge and experience into
the classroom, providing young people with a valuable window into the
world of work. During the Young Enterprise Company Programme, volunteer
business advisers guide and support a group of young people as they set
up and run their own company.

“Young Enterprise’s continued
success is only possible due to the active support of business at a
national, regional and local level. Businesses support the work of
Young Enterprise both through funding and by engaging their staff as
volunteer business advisers and board members.” Andrew Grimley, development director, Young Enterprise
