We are delighted to announce our partnership with The Youth Group to mentor young people within their 1.7 million-strong community, helping them to build confidence and thrive in today’s world.
The Youth Group is the largest community of young people in the UK, and our experienced, multidisciplinary team of designers, researchers and engineers have pledge to join The Youth Group’s 12,500+ mentors to motivate and inspire young people in the opportunities around design and innovation.

“At PDD, people are at the centre of our work. From the users we design for to the teams that make up our studios, we thrive on finding solutions that improve people’s lives and make good business sense. Now more than ever, we are also looking to give back, and inspire those at the start of their careers to make the most of the opportunities ahead. We are delighted to partner with The Youth Group and look forward to mentoring and supporting their talented young community as they take on the world.”
