YouthCan! builds on the expertise of partners and provides individualised, holistic support to help prepare young people for the job market.
Additionally, the digital platform YouthLinks allows us to leverage the power of technology to reach and support more young people so they can enhance their employability. YouthLinks provides an opportunity for young people and mentors to connect more easily, share materials, create networks and support each other, breaking geographical and time barriers.
The global partnership for youth employability was launched in 2017 and has by now established six global and more than 130 national corporate partnerships.
During 2018 YouthCan! reached out to 5,060 young people in 25 different countries, equally supporting boys and girls. 1,300 corporate volunteers shaped and facilitated trainings, exposure to the work environment and acted as mentors to young people in both online and face-to-face meetings.
