Young Crossrail worked with schools and young people closest to the route.
The Young Crossrail Programme was a key part of Crossrail’s Skills and Employment Strategy to develop a pipeline of engineering and construction workers beyond the lifetime of the project.
With the help of Young Crossrail ambassadors, the programme engaged with over 44,000 young people, teachers and parents across schools, colleges and universities to encourage more young people, particularly girls, to consider engineering and construction-related careers.
The Young Crossrail Programme transitioned to Transport for London (TfL) on 30 September 2016 and is now part of the TfL Schools and Young People Programme.
The TfL Schools and Young People is a pan-London programme which aims to provide school-aged students with resources to help them travel safely and confidently, as well as inspiring the next generation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics transport professionals. Further information on the TfL Schools and Young People Programme is available on the TfL website.
