A Cool Future
for Young People Everywhere
On June 12th, 10,000 guests will join together for The Patron’s Lunch to honour Her Majesty The Queen on her 90th birthday. For young people at the once-in-a-lifetime event, it’s a chance to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s service, while also embracing their own futures.
There’s nothing like ice cream to put a smile on your face. One taste can be a chance to turn a whole day around and the cold stuff is a favourite of both young and old.
Unilever is a proud Official Partner of The Patron’s Lunch and with the help of our Ice Cream Entrepreneurs, Wall’s will be on hand, serving ice cream to guests at the event. Wall’s sees this day as not only a chance to celebrate our Queen and her lifetime of service but also an opportunity to showcase the young people who are building sustainable businesses and improving their future prospects.
Youth unemployment is a growing global issue that can affect a person’s confidence and self-belief, and we feel every child and young person deserves a chance for a bright future. ‘I’m Walls’ is a an employment programme for young people, giving talented and driven individuals an opportunity to manage their own ice cream enterprise, with Unilever’s guidance and support.
I’m Wall’s entrepreneurs are taken through an integrated training programme with support and mentoring from The Skills Partnership, Kitbox business coaches and Unilever employees. For eligible candidates, the programme is recognised as an NVQ Traineeship. With expertise and guidance to hand, young people can gain the skills, experiences and enterprising attitude needed to kick-start their careers. No experience is required to join the scheme – simply the right attitude and determination.
As part of our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, we’re on our way to helping young people overcome the barriers to employment. The “I’m Wall’s” programme runs in 15 countries and this year will support over 100 young people in the UK. We are proud to be on track to create 100,000 new jobs by 2020, worldwide.
Our I’m Wall’s team will be on site, serving up ice cream at The Patron’s Lunch on June 12th. If you won’t be attending, fear not! You don’t have to be a special guest to enjoy ice cream and a cracking party. You can celebrate The Queen’s birthday with your very own street party – and a sustainable one at that!
