Youth Employment & Education and the COVID-19 Impact

The proposed project consists of a literature review and jurisdictional scan. We are seeking to understand the past and current literature on youth economic engagement, labour market engagement, post-secondary and training strategies and research, social wellbeing, and specific vulnerabilities for youth when engaging in the labour market. CFY will use this research to shape strategic recommendations to meet today’s challenges and barriers in the COVID pandemic and “new normal” so that Choices for Youth and other partners can act now and be ready to meet the needs of youth in the weeks and months ahead.
