Helping young people build connections

As part of International Youth Day – Coca Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) discusses the role of youth work and support from businesses when it comes to helping young people overcome barriers to employment.

Their view is that every young person should have the potential to thrive – no matter their background or experiences.

They recognise they have a responsibility as an employer to equip young people with the tools and resources that would enable them to thrive. In my view, giving back to the community isn’t just about providing financial support; we have other resources we can leverage to help make a difference.

They talk about their work with UK Youth in identifying the barriers to employment many young people face today and designing a programme of work to help young people overcome those obstacles, empowering them with the skills, confidence, and experience to feel workplace ready.
