Create Springboards to First Jobs

Getting a toehold into the world of work can open doors and set the stage for future success. This can be a big challenge for young people and we are searching for ideas that address it.

From matching young people with existing opportunities, to creative ways to build links between youth and employers in the formal and informal sector, to envisioning new approaches to apprenticeships, internships and the like – we’re looking for ways to help young people take the important first step into the world of work.
