RBC Future Launch is focusing on four opportunities to help youth:

Get work experience

Young people need more opportunities to apply their skills in the real world. 83% of educators feel youth are prepared for work, yet only 34% of employers and 44% of youth agree.

Grow their network

There are few things as important as your network. In fact, 85% of all jobs are filled via networking, yet many young people feel they lack or are unable to develop professional relationships.

Gain new skills

The nature of work is changing, and so are the skills required to win. 33% of core skill-sets for most jobs will be different in 2020 and 42% of the labour force will have skills that are at risk of automation in 10-20 years.

Enhance their mental

Mental well-being is important in order to excel at work. 1 in 5 youth are struggling with their mental health and 80% of those struggling don’t get the help they need.
