SYC is a Social Enterprise established to empower young people to challenge the social, economic and environmental issues affecting their lives and wellbeing, so they can build brighter futures for themselves. SYC co-creates programmes with young people and partner youth organisations that strategically address topics relevant to youth development. SYC programmes have an emphasis on Personal development and Entrepreneurship.

The projects support young people to become self aware, and to identify their personal skills and talents that they can use to further employment and entrepreneurial ventures.

SYC will broaden young people’s horizons by exposing them to new opportunities outside of their own communities.
