Construction Youth Trust is a charity whose aim is to inspire and enable young people to overcome barriers and discover a career in the construction and built environment sector.

 

Our vision is a construction and built environment sector that drives social mobility and delivers social value by inspiring and enabling the diverse young talents of 21st Century Britain to overcome barriers and build better futures.

 

Our mission is to inspire and support young people to achieve their full career potential in the construction and built environment sector. Social mobility is at the heart of our work and we prioritise supporting the hardest to reach young people, i.e. those from low income backgrounds, most likely to miss out on opportunities or facing barriers to employment. We help young people recognise their potential and discover opportunities that have never previously been presented to them.

We believe that by building long-term partnerships between schools and the construction and built environment sector that we can dismantle the misconstrued and out dated perception that many teachers, parents and young people have of the industry. The breadth of roles available within the construction and built environment is huge and diverse. By engaging young people at an early stage, we have the opportunity to broaden their career horizons and give them a clear line of sight to the wide range of real jobs and rewarding careers the modern industry has to offer.
