What we do

YP is a specialist in developing young people potential, specifically young people who struggle in main stream education or face financial barriers. Set up in 2016, YP Potential CIC is a division of The Apprentice Academy. Working with partners, we support projects designed to build young people’s self-esteem, increase aspiration and tackle social issues.

Our primary mission is to support young people who face social or economic barriers.  As well as sponsoring programmes ourselves, we also work with partners to co-fund projects through sister programme One Mile Project and our newest project 4 Legged Friends.

Within many communities we have a massive amount of untapped talent. Our passion is working with inner city and alternative provision schools helping them to unlock this talent.
