NoviaSalcedo Foundation’s objective is to accompany young people as they find their feet in the world of work and wider society once they have finished their secondary and higher education. We seek to provide them with the skills and values necessary to succeed in a world in constant change. We are aware of young people’s vulnerability as they face their future. This Prize is a tool to forward our work of smoothing the way for young people, of finding them allies and creating synergies.
With this prize, Novia Salcedo aims to:

  • Recognise and motivate those individuals, firms, administrative bodies and institutions -wherever they are in the world – that are working to help young people enter the labour market,
  • Publicize their achievements as an example to Humanity.
  • Raise awareness in wider society of the need to bring young people into the labour market, for the good of the smooth functioning of the welfare society,
  • Place the Basque Country in the panorama of great international prizes
