What is Win4Youth?

Every year, the Win4Youth program brings Adecco Group employees, associates and clients together to share their passion for sport and to have a positive impact on the lives of young people around the world.

Living our values

The Adecco Group aspires to empower people, fuel economies, and enrich societies by providing opportunities for meaningful lifetime employment.

Through the Win4Youth program, we unite our employees, associates and clients as they clock up kilometres and minutes for our global charity partner, Plan International, to improve the lives, education and employment prospects of young people around the world.

By taking part in Win4Youth, our people also improve their own health and well-being and reinforce the Adecco Group core values of:

Team Spirit
Employees and clients unite around sport – with a team spirit that stretches across 60 countries.

Customer Centricity
Our clients and associates join us for Win4Youth events around the world.

Participants are constantly coming up with new ideas for Win4Youth events to engage as many people as possible.

Participants take part in sports for a good reason – to transform the lives of young people and create a future for them through our charity partner.

Our employees, clients and associates come together to share their passion for sport.

Discover the impact you could have

Win4Youth started in 2010. Since then, we’ve raised over €2.5 million for youth charities through our amazing colleagues, clients, and associates who dedicate their time to sport.

We want to have an even greater impact in 2021 and beyond, and we’re delighted to partner with one global charity organization: Plan International. We’re joining forces to find innovative solutions to youth unemployment around the world.

For 2021, participants can track their sport activities through our Win4Youth app, or our tracking website. You can log  your kilometres (swim, bike, run or walk), and the time you spent doing any other sport. Whatever you do, it is for a good cause.

Our goal for 2021 is to log 1,5 million hours. The Adecco Group will donate a minimum of €500,000 to Plan International to support their youth employment and youth economic empowerment project, Fit for the Future. Find out more about the partnership with Plan International.

The main event 2021: Lanzarote

Every year, a group of the Adecco Group’s employees and associates is selected to become Win4Youth Ambassadors and live a life-changing experience. Our main event is the culmination of the program, and this experience is likely to be the sporting challenge of Ambassadors’ lives!

In the past, Win4Youth Ambassadors have taken part in major sporting challenges including the New York Marathon, the Garmin Barcelona Triathlon, the Athens Classic Marathon, the Col du Tourmalet Cycle Climb and the Gavà Triathlon in Spain, among others.

This year, the main event is our very own Win4Youth Triathlon, powered by Ocean Lava. The Win4Youth Triathlon will take place on October 23 rd 2021 at a cinematographic scenery: Lanzarote. This is one of the Spanish Canary islands, known for its year-round warm weather.

We want everyone to get involved! You can purchase packages for friends and family, clients and supporters.
