What does WPH believe?

Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Mentoring Youth Toward Employment

The Rapid Response Research team from McMaster University, worked in consultation with Workforce Planning Hamilton to create a recent report on youth mentoring. 

The results of an extensive literature review revealed two ways to address the needs of youth who experience barriers to employment. 

Suggestions include: 

1. Building a structured, intentional program that welcomes a youth's social and family circle
2. Selecting, matching, and training mentors with appropriate qualities and commitment.
