In a project aimed at improving career pathways for marginalized and vulnerable youth, a coalition of partners that includes First Work, OTEC, MaRS Data Catalyst Centre and the Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity, began working with Canada’s Future Skills Centre – Centre des Compétences futures (FSC-CCF) to test an innovative, evidence-based, approach to skills development for the new economy. The initiative, known as Project Integrate, is testing the potential impact and feasibility of a single technology-enabled employment and training pathway for youth.
New Horizons Better Together Project
We are looking for youth (18-29) and seniors (50+) who can take some time out to be a part of our focus groups. The focus group is specifically for those groups that share the same labour pool filling jobs.
