The Women of the Future Podcast: Jack Parsons

Surviving a difficult and challenging childhood in East London, Jack Parson’s mission in life is to make sure no one is left behind by society. 

Jack’s work is primarily focussed on the often overlooked 18-30 demographic who, for some, have not had the opportunities that many of their peers from different socio-economic backgrounds have had. Jack, and the Youth Group, are changing this, one young person at a time. 

With the core values of: be bold, be honest, be kind, Jack’s Youth Group enables young people in the UK to thrive, develop and build a successful future; and with a connected community of 1.7 million they’re really starting to make a huge difference.  

Jacks’ own accolades include being named as the UK’s Chief Youth Officer, listed on the UK’s 100 Business Power List, and as Young Digital Leader of the Year, with Jack also recognised as one of the 50 people on the ‘Kindness and Leadership: Leading Lights’ list, part of the Women of the Future Programme.
