    With some saying that Covid-19 has accelerated the future labour market, providing training for our youth on these skills has become more important than ever. The pandemic has increased the need for youth to be resilient, demonstrate a growth mindset, and develop collaborative skills for working in virtual teams, among others.

    As a response to this need, YES is pleased to launch the Future Skills 2.0 curriculum package designed to youth the best possible virtual learning experience, as well as provide them with skills that will give them a competitive edge in the current and post-COVID 19 job market.

    The new Career Accelerator Future Skills 2.0 curriculum, made possible thanks to the generous support of HSBC Canada, is now available for download for free across the country through the Career Accelerator national knowledge transfer and training program.
