15billion is an organisation committed to ‘transforming young futures’ and helping young people make the most of their lives.
We support young people into education, employment and training using innovative methods, programmes and tools that empower and enable young people to actively pursue sustainable career pathways. In addition, we provide independent information, advice and guidance to help young people aged 16 – 24 make informed choices.
Our staff work within schools, colleges and local community settings to ensure our services are accessible to all young people. We develop basic skills, offer vocation and pre-employability courses and signpost young people to appropriate apprenticeships, employment and learning opportunities. Young People are all individuals and as such no two people are the same and therefore our method of working is solution focussed and individualised.
In addition to delivering services directly to young people, we provide data management and tracking analysis services for service providers and support and facilitate organisations across the public, private and third sectors to work in partnership to develop and deliver innovative programmes across London.
