Opportunity for All Youth

Opportunity For All Youth is a national initiative originated with the MaRS Solutions Lab in Toronto to address youth unemployment. Over the next five years, the aim is to provide employment opportunities for 40,000 youth who face barriers to entering the workforce. This goal will be achieved through partnerships between employers, employment agencies, governments and foundations. It focuses on the hiring, retention and career progression of youth who are job-ready but have challenges to employment.

The City of Calgary Youth Employment Centre (YEC) is a key partner in this initiative. Calgary will be the second city in Canada to launch Opportunity For All Youth. YEC will contribute to the national goal of hiring 40,000 Opportunity Youth by supporting and preparing local youth who are experiencing difficulty entering the workforce.

YEC will also collaborate with employer partners to establish youth friendly hiring practices, strategies to increase retention, sensitivity training and career progression plans for the participants.

Youth ages 16-24 are encouraged to connect to this opportunity right now, by dropping in to the Youth Employment Centre (2nd floor, 315 10th Ave SE).
