Monday, 08 September 2014

CivicAction, joined by the Honourable Tracy MacCharles, Ontario Minister of Children and Youth Services, and Toronto Raptor Alumni and Community Ambassador Jamaal Magloire, announced a new initiative to connect youth facing barriers in the GTHA with their first job.  The Ontario government and the private sector agree that youth unemployment is too high, which is why the government has partnered with CivicAction to make a difference.

CivicAction gathered with private, government and not-for-profit partners to launch Escalator, an initiative to connect youth facing barriers with employment. As part of Escalator, CivicAction has adopted four strategies for fighting youth unemployment:

At the news conference, Minister MacCharles announced continued financial support as a part of Ontario's Youth Action Plan to help bring the ideas in Escalator to life. "Youth unemployment requires a co-operative approach between the private sector, communities and government. Our partnership with CivicAction is opening the door of opportunity so that at-risk youth can overcome barriers, pursue their dreams and realize their potential," says Minister MacCharles.

Today, CivicAction also announced initial projects with LinkedIn Canada, the world's largest online professional network, and NPower Canada, which with corporate partners delivers training in the tech sector for at-risk youth.

"CivicAction is working with the private sector in unprecedented ways to close the skills gap, make the job market more accessible to everyone, and give new networks to youth who currently don't have them," says the CEO of CivicAction, Sevaun Palvetzian.
