  • Need


    UK youth unemployment is at an all time high and many young people are facing an uncertain future. EIL wants to work with young people from across Worcestershire (and eventually beyond) and prepare them for an international volunteering / work experience project that will boost their confidence and life chances upon return.


    Our existing programme shows us clearly that over 50% of the young people who have been supported to undertake international work experience with our partners have found meaningful employment, education or volunteering positions within a year of the project. We are proud of this and the positive impact that our programmes have on participants.
