On August 18, 2017, the CivicAction Leadership Foundation, LinkedIn Canada, Ryerson University, and the City of Toronto are partnering to host YouthConnect 2017. A free one day event that equips those working with youth with the knowledge and skills to help their clients “get digital” and connect with people and jobs online.
Join the CivicAction Leadership Foundation, LinkedIn Canada, Ryerson University, and the City of Toronto for YouthConnect 2017—a free day of training where you’ll get the low-down on how to better serve your youth clients. This year you’ll have the opportunity to build your own day with more than five different topic sessions to choose from. Learn strategies to help your clients use online tools to brand themselves and gain access to employers and opportunities online. Plus, you’ll get the inside track from employers on what they look for in entry-level candidates, including the technical and soft skills that factor into hiring decisions.

At CivicAction we know how important it is to make a difference in the lives of young people across our region. Now, in its third year Escalator – an initiative that brings together private, public and community sector leaders to tackle the issue of unemployment for opportunity youth – is one of the important ways in which we’re addressing this issue of youth unemployment.
