CivicAction’s Escalator: Jobs for Youth Facing Barriers to Employment initiative emerged from a unique partnership among government, community, and the private sector to identify ways the private sector could contribute to tackling unemployment among youth facing barriers. Stakeholders, including leaders in the private sector, expressed a belief that business had a stronger role to play in supporting employment opportunities for young people who face multiple barriers.
One year later, this Progress Report provides an update on the successes and lessons learned from our three pilots. I authored a comprehensive Evaluation Report to complement our public facing project update.
