A Toolkit for Employers: Connecting Youth & Business

The toolkit was designed to assist businesses support and employ youth, with a particular focus on youth who have become disconnected from school and the labour market. This toolkit provides companies of all sizes with step-by-step instructions on developing skills training programs for youth in their workplaces. Employers will benefit from the toolkit’s self-assessment tool which will identify the appropriate “lane of engagement” they should follow to support youth. The toolkit includes case studies of best practices as well as links to additional tools and resources.

The toolkit was created by US-based Gap Inc. to support the White House Council on Community Solutions.
