Our total number of impacts made through B1G1. From Ukraine to Cambodia, from providing warm clothing to providing access to clean water.
For every hour of instruction given, we donate one day of education to a child in need.
We started our One for One Education Promise in 2017 and it continues today. Since then you’ve enabled us to provide over 141, 100 days of education to children in Chennai, India. B1G1 and the Hope Foundation make this possible. Every time you take ski or board lesson with us, you’re helping us create positive change in the world.
Education, learning and development is at the heart of what we do. We believe that providing education to children who may not receive it, while we’re helping you learn something new on the slopes, aligned perfectly for New Gen. Education is key in helping children and communities get out of poverty, and we believe this is an important cause to focus on. Check out our video to learn more.
Snow Day for Child Refugees
In 2017 we hosted our first Snow Day for child refugees living near Annecy, France. This fun-filled day is an opportunity for our team to share their love for skiing with kids who might not otherwise have the chance to enjoy it. Our Snow Days include sledging, face painting, climbing, and of course skiing!
Instructors & off-hill staff donate their time to make this day possible. Along with the help of many donations from local partners including S3V, Courchevel Mairie, Ski Higher & White Storm.
We’ve now hosted 4 Annual Snow Days since 2017 (missing winter 2021 unfortunately) and plan to continue them post-pandemic.
Snow-Camp National Youth Charity
We’re proud partners of Snow-Camp, one of the UK’s most innovative charities dedicated to changing the lives of inner-city young people with snowsports.
What do they do?
Each year, around 1,000 inner-city youth in the UK take part in Snow-Camp’s programmes. They engage young people through skiing and snowboarding to provide life-skills training and mental health support, while enabling them to gain qualifications and employment in the snowsports industry and beyond.
How do we help?
We raise money for Snow-Camp. For every £100 raised, a new young person benefits from Snow-Camp’s life-changing beginner programme. We feel very lucky to work in the ski industry and the mountains. The money raised broadens the horizons of young people that otherwise wouldn’t have such opportunities.
New Generation is a life-long member of Buy1Give1 (B1G1). This social enterprise enables us to integrate charitable giving into our daily business activities.
What do they do?
B1G1 links us with hundreds of small grassroots charities around the world. We then align our giving with what is happening internally at New Gen. Whether it’s through supporting a youth development programme on behalf of all the children skiing with us in a given month, or planting seeds on behalf of all beginners joining us for the first time.
Since joining B1G1 in 2015 we’ve made over 450,000 positive impacts so far.
Our Pledge: Net Zero by 2028
We’re proud to be the first ski school to take the Protect Our Winters UK Pledge! By taking the POW Pledge, we’ve committed to being Net Zero by 2028. The Pledge is a framework that helps organisations take climate action by addressing the eight most impactful areas of business.
Currently, we’re focused on reviewing our entire business operations and all the greenhouse gas emissions that we contribute to. We will then be systematically eliminating them so that we can hit our Net Zero target.
In the past, we’ve donated our old uniforms to refugees struggling with the winter temperatures across Europe.
However, we also had a large number of excess uniforms that were out of date, yet never worn! We knew we could repurpose them, which is where our friends at One Tree came in. They’re giving our uniforms a second life and re-selling them.
We off-set the environmental impact of the printing we do each winter via tree planting. We’ve planted a tree grove with Trees for Life. We planted 17 trees in the Scottish Highlands, and we plan to continuously add to ‘our grove’ and watch it grow over time.
Our Impact In Numbers
Through our 1-for-1 Promise, we’ve given over 55,000 days of education to children in Chennai, India.
25Our instructors did not let their old New Gen uniforms go to waste and donated them to refugees in Bosnia to help protect them in colder weather.
Throughout the season, New Gen and friends raised enough money to provide 50 Snow-Camp beginner programmes. Which are given to underprivileged inner-city young people.
17New trees are now in the ground in the Scottish Highlands as part of our initiative to offset our environmental impact of printed materials.
We’ve lent 5 micro-loans through Kiva to Yondima Group, Indosole, Susan’s Group, Jacqueline and Saul to help support those in the face of adversity.
