Become a Youth Verified™ Organisation
Youth Verified™ is a new verification status, evaluating the readiness of companies, organisations & education establishments to attract, support, and retain a future-focused youth workforce.
How does it work
Send us a message to say you would like to find out more information about how your company can become Youth Verified™.
Meet the Youth Lab
We will send over a Youth Verified™ digital starter application for relevant team members to complete then get to work to help you to become Youth Verified™.
Access, share and engage with young people
After we have received your results back from the Youth Lab, we will transparently share the results back with you and our recommended next steps.
Why is this important?
In a recent survey, The Youth Group found that 66% of young people feel employers are ill-prepared for attracting and supporting young people, and will skip getting involved if they don't believe the company has a culture that works for youth. The goal of Youth Verified™ is to give young people improved transparency when choosing a company to work for, or get involved with.
A young person aged 18-30 can be sure that any company to carry The Youth Group’s Youth Verified™ ‘tick’ has been through a rigorous step by step vetting process, and has made a commitment to engaging, recruiting, and supporting youth.
The Youth Group are a key partner for us. We are impressed with their approach, ensuring that organisations are not only creating great opportunities for young people but are doing so in a thoughtful and responsible way. Working with TYG on our Youth Verified accreditation adds a level of insight that helps us engage, recruit and support the best young talent
It is a pleasure to work with The Youth Group to achieve Youth Verified™ status, we are very impressed by how in-depth and detailed their process and analysis is. In addition to all the great work we already do to inspire, develop and empower young people, it gave us another layer of insight to support the young people.
We are thrilled to be part of this initiative. This goes hand in hand with our other work to create opportunities and careers in the energy industry and in growing the green workforce in particular. Partnering with the Youth Group is critical for us as we work to ensure that our attraction, selection and engagement of young people is transparent, inclusive and responsible.
We have always focused on offering great career opportunities to young people and supporting social mobility. Working with The Youth Group is a fantastic partnership for us, as it enables us to build on the work we have done so far and gain further insight, so that we can continue to hire, develop and empower talented young people.
I am very excited to see Pret being part of this and inspiring youth as it did with me many years ago.
