August 12th is International Youth Day! This year, the United Nations theme is 'Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages' helping to amplify the message that action is needed across all generations to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and ensure 'no one is left behind'.

ellieAt ASL Global, we believe that collaboration across the generations leads to a dynamic and successful workplace for us all. Since 2019 we have created an inclusive Work Experience programme that gives young people a chance to work with some of the world's biggest brands such as Coca-Cola, Heineken and L'Oreal. 

so-1The programme welcomes young people from all backgrounds and encourage them to engage in a wide variety of experiences which help to develop their skills and capabilities. 

Operating across 50+ countries, ASL Global is ideally placed to offer these youngsters a fantastic opportunity to work with a variety of global consumer brands. In return, our young colleagues contribute fresh ideas, challenge norms and engage positively every day. 

Despite Covid restrictions, since the new programme was implemented in 2020, ASL has welcomed Interns in the UK, Vietnam, Spain, Malaysia, Netherlands, Nigeria, France, Hong Kong and China - with more Internships planned for 2022/23.

Meet our latest Interns!

sg"Young people are on the frontlines of the struggle to build a better future for all. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the dire need for the kind of transformational change they seek – and young people must be full partners in that effort.”

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

EPxThis Internship Programme is part of ASL's wider Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiative. Our Chief Sustainability Officer, Emma Pomeroy, tells us more "Our approach to Diversity is not limited to gender or ethnicity, although we are fortunate to have a healthy balance of both across our business. It's also about diversity of thoughts, experiences and ideas, all of which help to build a dynamic, exciting and ultimately, successful business. We love the unique energy our Interns bring to their  teams."

We're proud of the opportunities being creating for young people in communities around the world through ASL's Internship Programme, and we appreciate the fantastic contribution our Interns make to our business every day. Happy International Youth Day!
