Volunteers Needed for Young Enterprise

Each year, the Young Enterprise Company Programme gives around 35,000 students across the UK aged 15 to 19 the opportunity to prepare for working life through the experience of running their own real company.

Through participating in the Company Programme, students develop their enterprise knowledge, understanding, skills and attributes in a business context through running their own real company. They are personally responsible to their shareholders for the running of the business but are encouraged to assess and take calculated risks in doing so. Throughout the life cycle of the company, students are learning by doing, coping with a changing and evolving business, developing skills and learning from their own mistakes.

Supported by a teacher and volunteer advisers from business, the students elect a board of directors from amongst their peers, raise share capital, and market and finance a product or service of their choice.

Were on the look out for new volunteer advisers from business to work with a local young company to enhance the students experience. Do you think you could help create our next generation of entrepreneurs? Would you like to find out more? Please go to ( in Scotland) to find out more.

Do get in touch if you can help us!
