    Sharing our knowledge and skills with young people

    At the heart of Rothschild & Co's Community Investment programme is a range of mentoring and tutoring volunteering initiatives through which Rothschild & Co employees help young people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds to acquire the knowledge and skills that will help them to succeed at school, university and beyond.

    Rothschild & Co is a committed partner to schools located close to our offices in the UK, Germany and North America, and across all our largest markets we work with charitable organisations addressing deprivation-linked inequality in educational outcomes. For example, with The Access Project we run a tutoring project helping students from lower-income households to achieve higher grades in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects enabling them to apply to top tier universities.

    Financial support for young people

    We offer financial support in various ways to help young people to pursue their higher education ambitions.

    In France a partnership with research university Sciences Po provides scholarships and mentoring to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. In addition the students are granted a privileged application track to Rothschild & Co internships.

    In South Africa the Rothschild & Co SA Foundation offers postgraduate scholarships to disadvantaged South Africans studying a financial discipline at the University of the Witwatersrand, and further supports the students through internships at Rothschild & Co.

    In the UK, the Rothschild & Co Bursary offers young people bursaries to help with living costs when they take up a place at a selective university outside London. We also offer charitable giving grants for projects that share our aims.

    From the very start of their career with us, interns and graduates across the UK take part in meaningful employee-volunteering opportunities. Our spring interns undertake volunteering with one of our community partners; summer interns undertake a fundraising project for the Rothschild & Co Bursary. Our graduates take part in a year-long volunteering project led by BeyondMe, offering their skills and their own money to an education-focused charity.
