spread the fire of entrepreneurship with YouthStart
2022 has been an eventful year. Globally, and at Balance HR. So we’re taking this opportunity to share some holiday cheer. A little extra warmth for all. Will you join us?
Kickstarting professional lives
Firstly, we would like to thank you for your contribution to many successful HR missions. Our warmest wishes for the new year!
Secondly, we’re shining a light on a charitable cause that’s close to our heart. YouthStart is a Belgian nonprofit organization that helps young people of diverse backgrounds kickstart their professional lives through free courses in entrepreneurship. To do so, they rely solely on donations.
If you can, please consider donating to this wonderful cause. Even the smallest contribution helps to make a tangible change to these young people’s lives. Feeling extra generous? Donations of € 40 and up are tax deductible.
Make sure to add “YouthStart x Balance HR” to the comment field. This way, we can match your donation.* In addition to providing financial support, we are revamping the mentoring track we set up with YouthStart in 2016.

A valuable contribution to society
In 2021, 1,093 youngsters took part in the 8-day course that YouthStart offers. The results? Immediately after completion, 47% of participants go back to school, find a job or start their own businesses. One year after completion, another 30% followed suit.
Help YouthStart to keep up their valuable work.
Better work for all
YouthStart aims to boost young people’s confidence and help them become the entrepreneurs of their own lives. During the course, professional coaches invite opportunity-seeking youths aged 16 to 30 to develop their talents and business skills.
Each participant materializes their ideas in a business plan based on their personal interests. Additionally, the youngsters learn how to present themselves and pitch their ideas like a professional: valuable skills that will help them on their path to better work and a better life. Which is exactly what Balance HR is all about.
* Balance HR will match all donations, up to a maximum of 500 EUR in total. The action runs until January 31, 2023.
