What is the Good Youth Employment Charter?
The Good Youth Employment Charter was co-created with young people and a range of partners by Youth Employment UK in 2012. The Charter was updated by the Youth Employment Group in 2020 in response to rising youth unemployment.
Make a Difference
Organisations are encouraged to work to the Principles of Good Youth Employment and can sign up free of charge to the Youth Friendly Employer Badge and be listed on the Youth Friendly Employer Database to be recognised for their commitment to the 5 principles. In a cluttered and confusing landscape young people will be able to search and explore organisations committed to providing quality opportunities and learn more about the opportunities that exist for them.
The 5 principles of Good Youth Employment are:
1. Creating opportunity
2. Recognising talent
3. Fair employment
4. Developing people
5. Youth voice
Sign the charter today. When you sign up to the Good Youth Employment Charter you will be given access to further support and guidance and access the partner Toolkit. You will also be able to download the Youth Friendly Employer Badge and update your listing on the Youth Friendly Employer Database.
