Introducing the KFC Youth Foundation
Rally behind Aussie Youth
Give young people confidence and they will succeed. We’ve seen this first-hand with our team members. And by partnering with Australia’s leading youth charities, the KFC Youth Foundation is helping build confidence in more young Australians through mentorship, skills development, mental wellbeing and overcoming disadvantage.
90% of our restaurant team members are under 25
We love the passion and drive of young Aussies. Since most of our team members are youth, we know they thrive, not just survive with the right support.
The KFC Youth Foundation is our chance to help young Aussies beyond our restaurants. It’s our opportunity to give young people the skills and support they need to flourish in the world now, and in the future.
We’ve commissioned a nation-wide research report, to help better understand how confidence affects the lives of Aussie youth. The results? There’s so much opportunity for improvement. Nearly half (40%) of young aussies we spoke to lack confidence almost every day. That’s a number we’re going to change.
Helping young Aussies thrive
The KFC Youth Foundation have partnered with Aussie cricketers Lyon, Wade, Labuschagne and Khawaja to help build confidence in young Aussies. Watch them push themselves out of their comfort zones and strut their stuff down the buckethead runway to prove that it always feels better to back yourself and say 'Bucket. Why not?'
