We know that developing the skills and capability of young people is key to a thriving future.
We are proud to sponsor the Young Enterprise Trust, a not-for-profit organisation aiming to create entrepreneurial students with a “can do” attitude. Programmes run from primary through to secondary school, and encourage students to be enterprising and financially literate.
Based in New Zealand, the Trust also has peer programmes in markets where Xero has a strong presence, such as Australia, the UK and the US. Students participating in the scheme use Xero to set up and run their company at no cost.
We think providing young people with the tools and support to create new, innovative businesses is a great way to support our wider community.
Xero also has a Graduate Programme to support graduates taking their first step in their professional careers.
