About us

What is our why?

Youth Card is all about enabling young people to do more for themselves.

More to improve their own employment prospects, more to expand their own horizons and more to help them kickstart their own career. By offering life-changing and life-preparing opportunities direct to young people’s phones through the free Youth Card app, we will empower more young people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to unlock their full potential.

Why now?

Youth Card is the result of a one-of-a-kind collaboration between educational equality charity Speakers for Schools alongside youth charities UK Youth, Young Enterprise, Young Scot and the European Youth Card Association.

All three charities recognise how challenging the last 12 months have been for the young people in our communities.

We have come together through Youth Card – combining our efforts as well as our collective expertise, experience and contacts – to provide a unique value-added service for young people in the most accessible of formats.

Working together, we aim to support 1 million young people through Youth Card by the end of August 2023.
