About the “Alliance for YOUth”

The “Alliance for YOUth”, initiated by Nestlé, has pledged in 2014 to develop a number of joint and individual initiatives to give young people meaningful work experience and internships, generating more than 100,000 jobs and training opportunities.

The companies will also mobilize their employees to go out into the community and help young people get ready for work by offering practical advice, CV clinics and interview preparation.  The “Alliance for YOUth” partners are active members of the European Commission’s European Alliance for Apprenticeships, promoting apprenticeships and training as active ambassadors of vocational training across Europe.
