Youth Training & Education Knowledge Brief

Youth are increasingly at a disadvantage in today’s labour market due to an increased emphasis on experience. In rural areas there can be even fewer opportunities for youth and those opportunities that are available can be undesirable (e.g., fewer opportunities, short term contracts, no benefits, low wages), impacting the ability for youth to stay or return. Additionally, inaccessible services and few youth specific services can amplify challenges, as can out-of-date marketing of job opportunities, negative perceptions of youth, and logistical challenges (e.g., transportation).
