The Prince of Wales set up the Prince's Trust in 1976 with the aim of helping young people who struggle at school, are in or leaving care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.
The Trust achieves this aim by delivering a range of educational programmes across the UK to young people between the ages of 13 – 30. Programmes offer the financial and practical support needed by young people to stabilise their lives, get back into work or into education/training.
The programmes’ particular focus on personal development enables improvements in both confidence and motivation, helping to guide young people in more positive directions.
Sofronie Foundation funds various Prince’s Trust 'Get started into STEM' programmes in the UK. Programmes are designed to encourage young people to enrol in STEM courses, where they can acquire the skills that the UK job market requires.
Further to learning about new careers, all students receive three months of support to assist their progression into further training, education, volunteering or employment.
The grant also includes a cash development award, which is offered to eligible young people. These sums can fund goods or tuition to help them with their further education/training.
This is our second year of support and we are keen to fund programmes which reach out to the many young people in the UK who are restricted in their choices and opportunities.
