Impetus - PEF

ThinkForward was created in 2010 by Impetus - The Private Equity Foundation (Impetus-PEF) following its research into how to dramatically reduce the likelihood of young people becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training). They are still a strategic partner today.

How to get involved

One of the things that makes ThinkForward unique is the way it links young people with businesses and work opportunities. Partners and donors have become part of a proven initiative helping young people make a successful transition from school to work, whilst also enabling them to proactively engage with schools, the local community and our other corporate supporters.
