We’ve teamed up with Young Enterprise to bring exciting opportunities for young people across the UK.
Young Enterprise is the UK’s leading enterprise education charity, and for over 50 years they’ve been working with young people to enable them to realise the extent of their own talents. Each year they give 250,000 young people aged 4 to 25 the chance to discover the skills they didn’t think they had. And this year 26,000 young people are getting the chance to run their own business for an academic year as part of Young Enterprise’s flagship Company Programme in secondary schools.
Through the Company Programme young people get the opportunity to take part in regional and national finals, presenting their ideas to panels of expert judges, with the aim of being crowned UK Company of the Year. Asda is proud to be sponsoring these events and we’re even going to be sending our senior managers along to act as judges on the panels!
Look out for Young Enterprise students visiting our stores in the first two weeks of March to see it in action. If you would like to get involved yourself and mentor a group of young people then click here for more information, or visit the Young Enterprise website.
