Activation of Youthworks Employment Toolkit: Summary Report

Activation of Youthworks Employment Toolkit: Summary Report

Building on results from It’s Everybody’s Business: Engaging the Private Sector in Solutions to Youth Homelessness and the resulting Employer/Agency Toolkit (2012) we worked with four community agencies to activate these tools and resources.

The Activation Phase of Youthworks ultimately created more employment opportunities for youth in these 4 communities and a replicable employment program model was developed that can be adapted by community agencies across Canada.

This report summarizes the key findings and promising practices for engaging the private sector in employment based solutions to youth homelessness. It also includes program models from our four partner agency employment programs.
