At Amazon, we are committed to ensuring more children and young adults have the resources and skills they need to build their best and brightest futures, especially those from lower-income communities in the areas where we have a physical presence. We focus on building long-term and innovative programmes that will have a lasting, positive impact in communities across the UK.
As part of this focus, we work to both inspire and increase access to computer science and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. Our primary computer science focused initiative is Amazon Future Engineer – a four-part, childhood-to-career programme aimed at inspiring and educating one million students from lower-income communities to try computer science and coding.
Amazon is also committed to what we call 'Right Now Needs' which includes increasing access to food and basic goods for children and their families. We work with the charity Magic Breakfast to fund primary school breakfast clubs and donate products to 100s of charities across the UK through our partner In Kind Direct
