Going beyond the stats

At Talent RISE our mission is to help young people facing barriers to employment into meaningful work. We’ve all seen the stats about youth unemployment, but these young people are more than just a number.

On September 3, 2021, Talent’s global workforce came together to offer free career guidance to young people struggling to find work for our first annual RISE Day. We spoke to young people in need to understand the barriers they were facing, offer support, and provide advice to help them take that first step towards the career of their dreams.

What you will see in this report are our findings from over 450 meaningful conversations that took place on RISE Day. The calls provided a powerful snapshot into the real state of youth unemployment, the challenges that young people are still facing, and what you can do to make a difference.

Behind the figures

How you can change a life

Help us end the youth unemployment problem. We believe that one of the most powerful and rewarding opportunities employers have is to embrace the potential of young people. Interested in how you can get involved and make a positive difference in the lives of youth? Willing to be a mentor or provide a young person with a life-changing career opportunity? We’d love to hear from you.

We’re passionate about embracing the potential of young people. At Talent RISE, we can help you do this too. Get in touch below to learn how.
