Following the success of the pilot and the energy and engagement from the Global Power company, we are embarking on a second phase of the programme, lasting 7 months, made of two components. Component 1: Continuing the work in Latin America and Spain to further support more youth-led businesses, Component 2: Expand our reach to enable Enel group staff to support youth-led businesses in Greece, Italy and Russia.

  • 65 (minimum) new active employee volunteers engaged as one-to-one mentors across 8 countries.  
  • Over 1,500 staff volunteer hours (20 hours per new mentors, including training, mentoring, and regular touch points and approx. 15 hours per existing mentor). 
  • 65 businesses from underserved communities supported.
