Why Nestlé needs YOUth?

We believe that communities cannot thrive if they fail to offer a bright future for younger generations. That is why we are determined to help young people develop their skills so that they can find fulfilling jobs, or create their own businesses. This helps build thriving, resilient communities and support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Created in 2013, our Nestlé needs YOUth initiative helps equip young people with the skills they need to thrive in tomorrow’s workplaces. Expanded in 2017, Nestlé needs YOUth continues to help young people take the next step in their life.


Our focus areas

Young people are the employees who will power companies. They are the innovators and entrepreneurs who will find solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow. They are the farmers who will grow the raw materials we need to feed the world.


Our impact

We want this initiative to have a long-lasting impact, so we measure the value of our Nestlé needs YOUth initiative to both Nestlé and society.

What are they saying?

Young people today don’t just want to work somewhere where we feel comfortable. We want to work for a company that adds real value to the world. Working with the right people is key to that. The people are what makes the company live, and breathe.

I’m working to create a social network for exchanging ideas, to not only help improve the quality of life for indigenous people by giving them access to modern thinking, but to also help preserve their ancestral knowledge, their customs and traditions.
