The Opportunity For All Youth coalition of employers is growing! It is supported by MaRS Discovery District. Together, the coalition is working with community employment agencies, governments and foundations across the country to positively impact hiring and lifelong employment for vulnerable NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) youth who face systemic barriers to meaningful employment.
We have set an ambitious five-year goal to significantly impact the national NEET unemployment rate by providing meaningful employment to 40,000 vulnerable NEET youth and engaging even more youth in education and training opportunities to prepare them for the workforce. To achieve this, we will work with community employment agencies and governments to improve the recruiting, hiring and retention systems for vulnerable NEET youth.
