creating spaces for youth to collaborate and drive change

your influence is needed

We believe there are multiple pathways to employment prosperity, but central to all of them is the need for young people to influence and shape how they connect and engage in work. Ultimately, we embrace collaborative and supportive approaches that connect leaders, youth, and resources at local, regional, and national levels to enhance the range of youth opportunities.

We want to break down the barriers that prevent youth from making meaningful connections to the labour market. These barriers impact youth employment but can intersect with education, health, and social inclusion. By building a network of diverse youth across Canada, we can ensure youth are involved directly in solutions that affect them.
