Experiential Learning and Pathways to Employment for Canadian Youth
The Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities agreed to undertake a study on the way in which experiential learning can guide younger Canadians through the transitions between high school, post-secondary education and the labour market.
The study has seven main themes:
youth underemployment after completing their education;
youth unemployment and how it harms the transition to the workforce;
volunteerism and internships and how they inform work decisions for students;
school-to-work transition strategy in Canada compared with international models and programs;
