Young people can’t access work if they don’t know which opportunities exist and what skills are needed to meet them. To level the playing field, we need to put information about potential career paths and in-demand jobs right at their fingertips. Through the YouthConnect pilot, CivicAction has offered hands-on training on how to build a digital network and get young people connected with employers and opportunities online.

In July 2016, CivicAction, LinkedIn Canada, the Ryerson Career Centre, and the City of Toronto held the second YouthConnect one-day conference, featuring guest speakers and workshops for youth workers from community-based organizations, youth facing barriers to employment, and employers.
