This Win4Youth Ambassador programme is more than a chance to experience a life-changing journey through sport. Every year, Ambassadors from around the globe aim to complete a challenge of a lifetime, an Olympic triathlon. They return home with more than a finishers medal; they are more confident, with better time management skills, strong global friendships and a level of perseverance they didn’t know they had. 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 kilometers and minutes in sports activities 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 improve their own health and well-being and reinforce the Adecco Group core values of: Passion Our employees, clients and associates come together to share their passion for sport.
