Schools and Young People
We’re passionate about maximising the opportunities available to children and young people regardless of their background and have set up a number of initiatives that allow us to provide support.
A vital way of delivering our purpose in the community and wider society is through the LSEG Foundation. Working with charity and NGO partners, we will deliver a range of programmes across the globe, creating opportunities for those in need to participate in education, employment and enterprise. This is a vast challenge, so we aim to focus our support where we think it can have the greatest impact. Our aim is to help people access economic opportunities and build a secure future with financial independence.
Our programmes vary by geography and need. We will create change through a variety of initiatives. These could include helping girls stay in school for longer, as part of a wider strategy to address gender inequality and community education, guiding young adults into secure work, education programmes for financial literacy or supporting individuals in reskilling for a fresh start.
In 2020 we announced our collaboration with Young Enterprise (YE), aimed at supporting 16-19-year olds across Greater London and the South East (UK) who face multiple barriers to social mobility. Together with YE we engage a diverse cohort of young people from the YE Company Programme, an immersive experience allowing young people to set up and run a student business over an academic year, to further build their skills by participating in work experience at LSEG. Not only do young people build confidence in their own enterprise, financial, and digital skills but they gain valuable insight into the breadth of future career pathways available within the sector.

The programme is currently focused on the UK, once established, we will look to replicate it in our other global locations.

At LSEG we believe financial literacy opens up options and opportunities. Whether it’s study and career choices now, or how to save and invest money later on in life, understanding how finance works can help build a better future for us all. To help boost the financial literacy of kids across the globe we offer a wealth of online resources and videos to help you learn more about the world of finance. Click here to find out more.
