The Youthquake programme is challenging young people to believe in themselves and the difference they can make to where they live.

This is an 18-week traineeship where The Learning Foundry will provide young people aged 16-24 living in the Liverpool City Region (Halton, St Helens, Wirral, Sefton, Liverpool) with the support, skills and confidence to unleash their inner entrepreneur. Learners will gain hands-on experience in developing their own business idea and the stages involved, from; research, innovation, development to branding – with support from successful people operating within these roles from within the Liverpool City Region. At the end of programme the Youthquake participants will have the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a panel of ‘dragons’ to get expert guidance and a boost for future employment opportunities. Getting involved in Youthquake is a chance for businesses to directly drive positive change by supporting ambitious young people.

The Youthquake programme is a partnership between Liverpool Combined Authority, The Good Business Festival, The Regenda Group and The Learning Foundry.

Two brilliant young women from the first Youthquake cohort joined us at our April pop-up event – Change Business for Good to talk to Garth Dallas about their experiences, what they’ve learned and how they see the future of good business. The session will be available to view on demand soon.


The Good Business Festival is passionately non-exclusive. It’s not about what you do or who you know. It’s not about agreeing on everything all of the time. It’s about everyone working towards a better world – no matter where you’re starting from.
