3aaa announces corporate sponsorship agreement with YEUK

Youth Employment UK CIC (YEUK) has announced a corporate sponsorship agreement with 3aaa as part of its drive to give young people life changing opportunities through employment and work with both local and national employers.

The corporate sponsorship highlights 3aaa’s continued investment in supporting youth employment; connecting young people with employers and raising the awareness of Apprenticeships across Schools and the community. Our aim is to support YEUK to raise the profile of youth employment. Through our network of employers we pledge to promote the youth friendly charter and support YEUK in tackling the issues around youth unemployment.

Andy Palmer, Managing Director, said: “We’re really pleased to be sponsoring Youth Employment UK and supporting the organisation in their really important work to reduce youth unemployment in the UK.  Through our network of more than 32 Academies spread throughout England we are constantly working with around 600 employers and 2,000 young people to promote the benefits of Apprenticeships and Traineeships.  By working with YEUK we hope that we can increase the number of employers who see young people having an important role in the growth of their businesses and get more young people making informed decisions about their futures and the opportunities open to them”.

Laura-Jane Rawlings CEO Youth Employment UK CIC added: “We are delighted that 3aaa have committed their support to YEUK.  Youth unemployment is still a major issue in the UK and we have been working hard to bring young people and those organisations who are youth friendly together.  Our policy work, campaigning and support for organisations and young people is having a positive impact on the landscape, but there is still much more to be done.  Having the support of 3aaa who are so invested in young people and the quality of opportunities for young people will be fantastic.”
