Increasing Opportunities for
Young Black Men in London

Despite great improvements in educational achievement, the unemployment rate for young black men in London remains high.

This initiative is to educate businesses and organisations, to encourage them to employ talented, motivated young black men who can be very valuable in helping them to achieve the objectives of their organisation.

Overcoming the Challenges

Research completed by BTEG (the Black Training and Enterprise Group) finds that young black men feel they have to overcome negative stereotypes and discrimination in the job market.

Step Ahead, in conjunction with #MovingOnUpLDN and BTEG, is helping to train, educate, support and employ young black people. We’re here to work with you to help employers in London understand and appreciate that there is a highly valuable source of talent and resource in the young black men of our Capital.
