The “Global Alliance for YOUth” is committed to supporting 15 million young people by 2022, helping them develop employability skills for the future such as the digital environment, social skills, knowledge in the STEM areas (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), professional advice and entrepreneurship.

This new commitment represents a significant increase in the goal of 6 million opportunities announced last year.

Laurent Freixe, Nestlé CEO for the Americas Zone, has stressed the importance of working together to maximize the impact:

"With the 'Global Alliance for YOUth' we are taking a fundamental step to mobilize society for the employability of young people. At Nestlé we are committed to this purpose and that is why we have joined forces with other private companies to provide this group the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the 21st century."

Nestlé founded “Alliance for YOUth” in Europe in 2014 with the purpose of helping prepare young people to enter the professional world. After its successful launch, it expanded to the countries of the Pacific Alliance in 2017 (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru) and to the Mercosur countries in 2018 (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay).

20 multinational companies have joined this Alliance: Adecco Group, BT, Cargill, CEMEX, Engie, EY, Facebook, Firmenich, MasterCard, Mercer, Microsoft, Nestlé, Nielsen, Publicis Groupe, SAP, Sodexo, Starbucks, Rockwell Automation, Vodafone and White & Case. The Alliance is also proud to work with public sector partners, such as the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the World Bank.
