Building sustainable future for young people globally

Prince’s Trust America

About Us

The Prince’s Trust was founded on the vision that every young person should have the chance to succeed – a vision that remains unchanged today.

Our Mission

The Prince’s Trust is committed to transforming young lives by enabling young people aged 11 to 30 complete their journey from education to employment. We help young people to develop their confidence and life skills, to engage with their education and to move into employment or become their own boss.

Start Something

The Trust has helped over 950,000 young people to date and supports over 100 more each day. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, training or education.

How You Can Help

We plan to draw together a global circle of friends and expand our network of Patrons in the US; convening a group of US-based philanthropists and companies to invest in our vital projects for young people internationally.

The Numbers

Together, we can highlight the difference The Prince’s Trust has made to hundred of thousands of young people across the globe, and the need to support many more.

“We have supported more than 1,000,000 young people since 1976”.
