Opportunity For All Youth

There is a quiet crisis of approximately 1 million Canadian youth who are not in school, not employed and who are not finding opportunities to succeed. The Opportunity For All Youth initiative aims to fundamentally improve opportunities for vulnerable youth by setting a collective goal of providing meaningful employment and job training to 100,000 Canadians aged 16-29 who face barriers to entering the workforce.

Such a goal requires a collective effort, at a national scale, of committed employers working closely with community employment agencies, governments and foundations on hiring, retention and progression of youth who are job-ready but who lack opportunity. Opportunity For All Youth is an employer-led, national effort to hire this population of youth by learning together, scaling what works, piloting new approaches, sharing this with other employers and growing the movement. Closing the opportunity divide creates pathways for youth who face barriers to entering the workforce, while meeting critical business needs and strengthening our economy.
