Must read: Supporting NEET Indigenous and newcomer youth

Through virtual focus group sessions, key informant interviews, and an online survey, over 50 college and institute administrators and community stakeholders shared insights that will provide decision makers with the data needed to better support disenfranchised groups in Canada and to help build a more competitive workforce!

Our new environmental scan highlights college and institute programs, program components, tools, and resources designed to support Indigenous and newcomer youth not in employment, education or training (NEET) and identifies both facilitating factors and barriers to the uptake of these resources.

The scan marks an important beginning to our new Skills Compass program that will help young NEET Canadians develop the life skills and essential skills they need to go back to school and prepare for a career!
