Nestlé Needs YOUth

Nestlé Needs YOUth

Why Nestlé needs YOUth!

Because you’re vital to our future and that of society, and have great ideas and visions about how to make a positive future impact. We at Nestlé share that vision – your dreams can change the world!

We want to help you become our next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs and agripreneurs. Game changers whatever your field or level of expertise. 

We’re passionate about nurturing your talent, energy and dreams to help ensure a sustainable future for everyone. Investing in youth is essential for thriving, resilient communities, and it helps build our business too. Young people help drive change at Nestlé – you keep us dynamic and competitive.

We know life isn’t easy for young people nowadays – 71 million youth worldwide are unemployed, while over half a billion are under-employed, or stuck in uncertain or precarious jobs. 

This is why we launched Nestlé Needs YOUth, now our

global youth initiative. Through it we’ve helped prepare hundreds of thousands of young people for work, trained and supported over 4 million farmers, and helped 2 million women develop business skills.

We’ve also offered young people tens of thousands of apprenticeships, traineeships and job opportunities. And this is just the start! Our commitments support our new ambition: to help 10 million young people worldwide access economic opportunities by 2030. 

We’ve also founded the

Alliance for YOUth, as a business-driven movement that helps prepare young people for working life and improve their job prospects. 

Investing in today’s youth is a win for everybody’s future – for our business, local communities and the planet. Nestlé Needs YOUth, Nestlé needs YOU!

offer you.
