We support young people to develop the skills they need to succeed in an ever-changing world
Working with people to help them be more creative, innovative entrepreneurs is a huge part of what we do. Working with young people to ensure they can overcome their unique, personal barriers and find a future that excites and works for them is another.
Since RIO was created in 2007, we have worked in a variety of ways with young people, and will continue to do so now and into the future. Through our Talent Match project alone, which ran from 2013-18, we worked with 630 18-24-year olds. This year, we’ve helped create 95 placements, work experience opportunities and internships for young people in need, and given 661 young people direct support to enable them to gain formal and nationally-recognised qualifications. We’ve also worked directly with 415 schools this year, supporting them with in-depth creative and social enterprise expertise, allowing them to generate more social and educational impact.
