By 2035, the International Monetary Fund estimates the number of Africans joining the labor market each year will exceed that of the rest of the world combined.

In the first two years of the project (Phase One), demonstration projects on Family and Natural Supports Program, Youth Reconnect and Housing First for Youth, Housing First for Youth Exiting Care, and Housing First for Indigenous Youth are taking place in 10 Canadian cities: Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray. Over 1,300 youth and their families will participate. The project is delivered by a partnership between A Way Home Canada, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness, MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, two provinces (Ontario and Alberta), and dozens of community partners. Since January 2017, Choices for Youth in Newfoundland & Labrador, have been mobilizing around a new Social Innovation Project that seeks to demonstrate how these innovations can be applied to support programs for transformative outcomes and intergenerational impact. Specifically, this part of the webinar will explore how social enterprise and a family focused approach can be embedded as critical components of the support provided to at-risk and homeless youth. The project will work with 490 youth, helping them achieve stability in family life, mental health, education, employment and housing. Speakers: Melanie Redman, Executive Director, A Way Home: Working Together to End Youth Homelessness in Canada Ayon Shahed, Director of Strategic Development, Choices for Youth Stephen Gaetz, Director, Canadian Observatory on Homelessness & Professor, Faculty of Education at York University

AgriProFocus Rwanda through its ''Youth in Agribusiness Innovation Community'' (led by RDI) in partnership with the University of Rwanda - College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (UR-CAVM) and Rwanda Youth in Agribusiness Forum (RYAF) organized the 2nd Youth in Agribusiness Festival on the 7th December 2016 at UR-CAVM, Busogo Campus. Under the theme ''Attracting & Retaining Youth in Agribusiness'' the festival attracted 650 participants (384 male and 266 female) drawn from UR-CAVM (students & lecturers), agripreneurs' companies, agribusiness companies, financial institutions, government youth programmes and NGOs with youth programmes. The event also was attended by a team of 23 people (made of the youth agripreneurs and AgriProFocus Congo staff) all from RDC North & South Kivu. Through a small exhibition which was attended by 27 youth agipreneurs who showcased their products & services, and through the panel sessions where the young role models pitched about their businesses, the selected role models served as an inspiration to other youth participants who want to tap into agribusiness. In this 2nd youth in agribusiness festival, the youth role models' pitches focused on ‘’Sparking youth interest in agribusiness’’ by sharing opportunities & challenges in Horticulture, Potato farming, Poultry & Pig farming & Beekeeping. The festival produced concrete recommendations for establishing agribusiness incubation centers with a focus on job creation, youth employment and partnerships/linkages.
