The Prince’s Trust believes in young people. They believe that every young person, no matter what their background, has the potential to succeed and build a better future for themselves.
Through their unique programmes, they give practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. They have helped more than 650,000 young people since 1976. In addition, they support a further 100 young people each day and 80% of those that complete our programmes get a job, move into further education, training or meaningful volunteering.
The young people they support have often overcome tremendous barriers: ill-health, drug dependency, poverty and lack of confidence to name a few. They reach into the most disadvantaged communities across the UK and focus their efforts on helping people aged 13 to 30 who are: struggling at school, leaving care, long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.

Prince’s Trust xl clubs
A personal development programme aimed at young people aged 13 to 19 at risk of underachievement or exclusion from school. The aim is to keep young people in school and to re-engage them in education through an informal, youth-led and supportive setting.
Prince’s Trust xl clubs have been running since 1998 and there are currently over 900 clubs supporting more than 10,000 young people across the UK. Guided by an Adviser, young people are encouraged to work together as a small group to achieve goals relating to their education, training and future lives. Through practical and fun activities, a Prince’s Trust xl club provides young people with the space and attention they need to learn skills and confidence as well as to form a sense of ownership over their work and own development.
There are five key activity areas: Personal, Team and Interpersonal Skills; Active Citizenship, Entrepreneurship and Enterprise; Preparation for Work; Enrichment Projects.
