The Youth Futures Council advises provincial government on ways to enhance programs, policies, strategies and resources for youth. With the help of the Council, a number of youth-focused initiatives have begun or expanded, including: expansion of the Graduate Mentorship Program, supporting 275 young people with job placements; creation of the Career Connect program; and expansion of the Community Service Bursary. New initiatives are underway: surveying Islanders living away on how we can help them move back to PEI; expanding the Team Seafood program to create Farm Team PEI, a work experience and bursary program for high school students; enhancing experiential education and work-integrated learning at UPEI; revamping the student business program to meet the needs of youth starting a business; facilitate a discussion with entrepreneurial organizations to develop a mentoring program for new businesses.
