About us

We were founded by His Majesty King Charles III to tackle the global crisis of youth unemployment and have been supporting young people worldwide since 2015.

We are committed to amplifying the voices of young people on the global stage and putting their needs at the very heart of the design and delivery of our work. This complements global efforts to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those relating to quality education and decent work.
Our programmes and interventions are now present in 20 countries within the Commonwealth and beyond, across Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe.

 Last year, 7 in 10 young people who participated in our employability programmes entered the labour market, while our enterprise programmes provided young people with the knowledge and skills to start their own business. Since working with PTI, our network of partners have reached almost 4 million young people.

We have supported over 100,000 young people since our inception.

Our Heritage: The Prince's Trust

In the UK, The Prince’s Trust has worked with over 1 million young people since 1976.

Established by our founder, His Majesty King Charles III during an earlier time of huge economic uncertainty, The Prince’s Trust was built upon the commitment that every young person should have the chance to succeed.

Today, The Prince’s Trust is the UK’s leading youth charity, helping young people aged between 11 and 30 who are struggling at school, unemployed, dealing with mental health problems or at risk of exclusion. The Prince’s Trust provides opportunities for young people to re-engage with education, start careers and launch their own businesses.
