Burberry takes Inspire programme global to help young people


Burberry Inspire

It’s now a global initiative that will support 500,000 young people over the next three years after the Burberry Foundation decided last year to focus its activities to include Burberry’s key operational geographies. 
The new programme builds on the success of the Foundation’s flagship Inspire community initiative that ran from 2018 to 2022. That linked up schools in Britain and the US with locally renowned arts and culture organisations to explore the positive impact that the creative arts can have on young people’s lives.  

Designed by the company and the Foundation in partnership with the International Youth Foundation (IYF), the expanded Burberry Inspire programme now “aims to create opportunities” to unlock the participants’ “creativity and drive positive change in their lives and communities” more widely. 
In this case ‘young’ means those aged between 10 and 24. The programme will inspire, equip and elevate their voices by taking a wider and more holistic approach to channelling creativity”.
‘Creativity’ now doesn’t only mean the visual and performing arts, but also supporting STEM-related skills and encouraging leadership “through both personal development and social engagement”. 
The expanded programme is supported by eight regional partners including CSV Milano, Community Youth Center (CYC) of San Francisco, Girls Inc of New York City, Girl Scouts of Japan, Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA), Future for Youth Foundation in Korea, New York Edge and current Burberry Foundation partner, Onside in the UK. 
Each one will work closely with young people in their local communities to design and tailor the programme to their respective region. 
Further partners in additional regions are due to be announced as the programme starts, including in Hong Kong. 
The Burberry Foundation was set up in 2008 by the company as an independent body for general charitable purposes and grant-making.
