Pop Up Enterprises CIC delivers high quality, bespoke youth work and employability programmes, which help raise young people’s aspirations and prepare them for future employment and adult life.
We encourage and support the development of youth entrepreneurship through the delivery of enterprise projects and workshops. We also work in partnership with young people to design and sell a range of products supporting good causes. You can find our latest products in our online shop.
As a social enterprise, we reinvest our surplus profit back into helping us achieve our social mission and providing more opportunities for young people to gain the skills they need to live healthy and happy lives.
Our projects are known for providing creative and innovative opportunities for young people to develop confidence, life skills and boost their employability, so it’s no surprise our young people are making headlines and giving us great feedback!
