Future First Global is a new charity looking to transform the school to work transition for millions of young people worldwide over the next decade. The charity was launched based on the findings of a nine-country research study that covered countries in Asia, East and West Africa, Latin America, North America, Europe and the Middle East, sponsored by the Open Society Foundations.
The study unearthed a vast resource that is the latent will of former students to re-engage with their former schools as relatable role models, mentors, work experience providers and trusted advisers. While only 2% of adults polled had engaged with or gone back to their former high schools to date, 52% of those they asked said they would be willing to do so.
Future First Global’s mission is to help schools leverage that will to give back, at an international scale. Find out more about our approach.
