PUSH! Enterprise

Connecting at-risk young people with hands-on, entry-level employment opportunities.

PUSH! Enterprise is a social enterprise with a mission to help at-risk youth by providing them with their first real job opportunities. We understand the power of employment in transforming lives, especially when it comes to getting a strong start in the workforce. Our focus is on sectors like garden maintenance, commercial cleaning, property maintenance, and catering—areas where we can offer meaningful, hands-on employment.

The initiative is about more than just work; it's about building a foundation for a better future. For the young people involved, PUSH! Enterprise is their entrance into the workforce, offering them a chance to work alongside our staff, learn valuable skills, and gain the confidence needed to succeed in their careers.

Younity sees PUSH! Enterprise as an opportunity to extend our support system, offering mentoring and support to more young people, including graduates from our other PUSH! programs. It's a practical, effective way for businesses to get the services they need while making a real difference in the lives of young people who need an opportunity the most.
