The Prince's Trust International is an extension of The Prince's Trust, an organization that has reportedly helped people in the United Kingdom, aged 13 to 30, have a better life for the past 43 years.

The extension found back in 2015, has the same purpose but focuses on helping young people from Australia, India, Canada, Jordan, Malta, Pakistan and Barbados.
