Starbucks Canada targets youth unemployment with program to hire at-risk young people

Baku, November 12, AZERTAC

Starbucks Canada is expanding a program to address “a crisis” in youth unemployment by committing to hire 10 per cent of its work force from among the country’s disadvantaged young people, according to the Financial Post.

The Opportunity Youth program was launched as a pilot in Toronto in April. Starbucks will expand the program, starting in Montreal and Vancouver, and eventually reaching across Canada, employing 3,500 people between the ages of 16 and 22, who are not working, in school or in a training program.

Starbucks Canada employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week are entitled to dental and medical benefits and tuition reimbursement.
