Young Enterprise Northern Ireland is a Northern Ireland charity developing the entrepreneurial skills and aspirations of young people aged four to 25 to prepare them for the new economy. We develop the skills of young people to ensure they leave education prepared for life and work. We do this via a series of progressive programmes.

Participants generally are within traditional school setting when participating; however, we also deliver programmes to youth groups/clubs across many communities, which don’t follow traditional school teaching.

We are supported by volunteers; typically, in the business community and rely on their entrepreneurial experience/talents to inspire and motivate programme participants.

We are also supported by financial and in-kind support from public & private sector organizations along with other grant making bodies.

Why Young Enterprise Northern Ireland is supporting Boardroom Apprentice
