Nestlé Needs YOUth

Our ambition is to help 10 million young people around the world access economic opportunities by 2030 through employment and employability, agripreneurship, and entrepreneurship. 

Young people are at the heart of regeneration and are our future. They are the entrepreneurs and innovators of tomorrow, and the next generation of farmers who will feed our growing population. They help their communities thrive and benefit Nestlé with their fresh ideas, diverse perspectives and energy. 

Our Nestlé needs YOUth initiative aims to help young people gain access to apprenticeships, traineeships and job opportunities – empowering them with skills they need to thrive. Supporting future Nestlé farmers means we can train them in regenerative agriculture.


We want to help you become our next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs and agripreneurs. Game changers whatever your field or level of expertise. 

We’re passionate about nurturing your talent, energy and dreams to help ensure a sustainable future for everyone. Investing in youth is essential for thriving, resilient communities, and it helps build our business too. 

Young people help drive change at Nestlé – you keep us dynamic and competitive.

Since the launch of Nestlé needs YOUth in 2013, the company has already provided more than 26 000 apprenticeships and traineeships.
In the Nordics we will provide 440 job opportunities and 340 apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities from 2021-2025.



This is why we launched Nestlé Needs YOUth, now our global youth initiative. Through it we’ve helped prepare hundreds of thousands of young people for work, trained and supported over 4 million farmers, and helped 2 million women develop business skills.


We’ve also offered young people tens of thousands of apprenticeships, traineeships and job opportunities. And this is just the start! Our commitments support our new ambition: to help 10 million young people worldwide access economic opportunities by 2030. 



We’ve also founded the Alliance for YOUth, as a business-driven movement that helps prepare young people for working life and improve their job prospects. 


Investing in today’s youth is a win for everybody’s future – for our business, local communities and the planet. Nestlé Needs YOUth, Nestlé needs YOU! Our Alliance partners include: Adecco, AXA, Cargill, Engie, Nielsen, Publicis Group and Solay.
