CCEP is proud to deliver the Reach Up programme in partnership with the charity UK Youth. The programme aims to empower young people with the confidence, skills and experience needed to feel ready for the workplace.
Our colleagues volunteer their time on the programme, providing unique opportunities for young people. They can journey through interactive experiences, including mock interviews, networking workshops, spending time with our Field Sales team and running their own community café.
Even during the pandemic, the hard work of CCEP associates ensured that we were able to reach 100+ young people in 2020. We delivered a jam-packed programme of online support, and we can’t wait to build connections and inspire more participants in the years to come.
See some feedback from our employees below:
“Amazing — I was overwhelmed by how engaged and eager the young people were. I was also humbled by the change I saw in young people from the first session to the last.”
“Definitely an eye-opener to the amount of talented, creative minds we have within our communities, all they need is a chance to shine.”
