London: The Prince's Trust will provide skills training to 7,000 young people in the UK this year, with the goal of helping 3,500 secure jobs – following an additional £200,000 from Accenture. Those who don't get a job immediately will still be supported over the next 12 months, with many going on to further training. Accenture's total contribution of £1.2 million since 2012 is enabling The Prince's Trust to expand its flagship employability program – Get into – to deliver professional and industry–specific job skills training to young people between the ages of 16 to 25. The grant, which includes a mix of funding and the time and skills of Accenture employees, is part of the firm's corporate citizenship initiative, Skills to Succeed, which is equipping more than 700,000 people around the world with the skills to get a job or build a business.
