Our programmes provide practical ways for young people to get a taste of the world of work and the excitement of running a business.
Our purpose is to forge links between schools and industry, and our mission is to inspire and equip young people to learn and succeed through enterprise. Local year 12 students (or Achievers as YE knows them) from 3 island schools take part in Young Enterprise, with around 40-50 participating each year. They are guided by volunteer business advisers, who give up their own time to help mentor the Achievers. Young Enterprise’s mission statement is “to inspire and equip young people to learn and succeed through enterprise.” Its guiding principle is to do this through ‘learning by doing.’ As such, we believe in fostering innovation and independence in all of our achievers.
