In recent years, joining the workforce has become a much more intricate and competitive process for people in all industries.

The demand for basic skills and experience for youth entering the workforce is ever-increasing. There is a large number of youths on a national scale that are facing many barriers regarding employment when entering today’s job market fields. 

 

Building Young Entrepreneurs is a digital training and mentorship programme that provides multi-barriered youth ages 18-29 across Canada with skills, work experience, and professional networks to improve their employability and to succeed in the workforce of today and tomorrow. The programme provides the essential tools and techniques needed to gain meaningful employment and excel in the workplace environment.

 

Building Young Entrepreneurs also supports youth who are interested in creating businesses, by teaching them the fundamentals and basics of entrepreneurship.
