Our Story

The world of work is changing so fast that 65% of children entering primary school today, will end up working in completely new job types that do not yet exist.

Good grades are no longer a guarantee of success. We believe the future belongs to those who create it. Brought together by a passion to empower young people to create from a place of passion, we came together to create Bold at Work.   

BOLD at Work is a new way of equipping young people with the 21st century skills needed for the future of work.
