What is the Youth Friendly Employer Award?

The Youth Friendly Employer Award is a quality kitemark that assesses organisations against a best practice framework. The Award supports organisations to embed a youth friendly employment culture to help create a motivated and diverse future workforce.

Organisations with the Youth Friendly Employer Award demonstrate that they provide young people with quality opportunities to explore and experience the world of work, as well as having a range of youth employment pathways. Youth Friendly Employers are supported with a comprehensive resource bank which provides advice and guidance on all aspects of youth employment and are profiled and connected to the Young Professional Network.
