The Princes Trust

The Prince’s Trust is a charity that believes in young people who often don’t believe in themselves. We seek out those young people that need our help the most and work with young people who struggle at school, are in or leaving care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We work with young people aged 14-30 to help them get back into work, education and training.

We also involve young people in the design and evaluation of programmes. Our programmes include engagement activities, progression support and peer mentoring.

The aim of youth work is to provide young people with opportunities for personal and social development that enable them to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to play an active role in decisions that affect their lives.

The Youth Service utilises a diverse range of informal learning opportunities to engage and enable young people to develop as empowered individuals and members of groups and communities.
You can get involved in accredited activities including the PlmYouth Awards and the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme. We are also participating in the ‘Children’s University’ and providing free courses with our ‘Summer Mix’ programme .
