As a global initiative providing a platform for cross-sector collaboration, the Youth Career Initiative offers an ideal opportunity for institutional donors. This includes foundations, trusts, development agencies and even private sector organisations that are willing to invest in the education and employability of disadvantaged and at-risk youth in selected markets across the world.
The global hospitality industry, which champions the implementation of YCI through their local full-service hotels in 11 countries, typically matches threefold any donations made by individuals and corporates to support the operation and expansion of the initiative within existing countries and into new markets. This means your investment can go a long way and reach out to more young people in need of an opportunity to enhance their life prospects.
"Institutional and corporate funding is essential to enable the growth of YCI, particularly the set up of new locations and country programmes."
The YCI Global Team does all the preparation work to build up the required local capacity and the local networks and partnerships before a programme can be launched and grown over time.
Sustainability strategies are critical and integrated into the overall implementation plan in each market. An institutional donor can provide funding to underpin the initiative globally or it can choose to fund the set up or expansion of YCI in relevant markets.
