What barriers are you talking about?

There are a number of reasons why it’s difficult
for young people to discover work they love that also has a
positive social impact.

 

Here are the top three:

While learning institutions do their best to equip students with the skills necessary for employment, they don’t cultivate in youths the ability to discern what forms of employment they’ll find fulfilling, and they have difficulty exposing them to unique employment opportunities.

Only 32% of NGOs globally have a social media strategy. This means that in terms of brand awareness, they and other socially driven organizations tend to operate in the shadows of businesses that have more engaging social media presences.

Plenty of information about organizations and foundations can be found online. However, there are no online resources that compile such information into one place, in a way that is user friendly... If there is, I’ve never found it (case in point).

Do young people even care? I thought they only care about avocado toast.

Of course we do! Climate change = no more avocado toast. But let's set the record straight.  We do care . Some of us just don't know where to start due to two hefty barriers*:

exist outside of ‘typical’ job descriptions

We're unaware that alternative life paths and opportunities

identifying and pursuing those opportunities

We can't find  actionable steps that will guide us in

And those are just the barriers we aim to reduce. We believe that
Get Out There has the potential to inspire the younger generation to make even greater change in both small and large businesses, in their local communities, and in our global economies.
