With the onset of automation and augmentation as well as an aging workforce, YES aims to prepare youth for the jobs of the future.

The HSBC Career Accelerator Program provides youth facing multiple barriers to employment with specialized pre-employment training to help them obtain the soft skills and global skills needed for the labour market of today and the future. The program encompasses four key elements with youth receiving customized future pre-employment skills training, digital literacy skills training, paid work placements in a profession/ industry that is less prone to future automation OR augmentation, and access to wrap-around supports including mentors.

Through an innovative, specialized future skills curriculum, youth are equipped with skills to help prepare them for the jobs of the future including self-awareness, resiliency, novel thinking, growth mindset, agency, metacognition, self-regulation and more.

Thanks to HSBC’s generosity, the program will not only support youth in the Greater Toronto Area but will also impact youth nationally across Canada.

The new Career Accelerator Future Skills curriculum is now available for download for free across the country through the Career Accelerator knowledge transfer and training program. Each of the 8 modules includes a facilitator’s guide, participant workbook and PowerPoint presentation.
