Statistics show that 1 in every 5 young people are unemployed or either in a job that keeps them in poverty. This alarming statistic has been the stimuli for Nestlé to launch Nestlé Needs Youth. An initiative launched in 2013, with the sole objective of creating sustainable opportunities for young people to advance their professional career. We have made a global commitment to help 10 million young people worldwide access economic opportunities by 2030.

As a student in university I appreciate that Nestlé offered me an internship before I graduated. I can see the connection between the information I learn in lectures and the systems and processes in the company. For me this is an experience of a lifetime.
