More information on the Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress initiative
The Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress initiative, which has funded the PRAKSIS BCC since August 2016, involves a three-year, $ 100 million investment program and a voluntary contribution of 10,000 Citi employees aimed at supporting the vocational training and employment of 500,000 young people around the world who need to meet the challenges of the modern competitive labor market.
It is an extension of an initial $ 50 million offer that supported more than 100,000 young people in ten US cities. The Pathways to Progress initiative aims to reduce youth unemployment in major cities around the world, improve the quality of the workforce by creating opportunities for first-time work, internships, vocational training and business skills development. At the same time, it presents the findings of a new global survey that demonstrates the high level of optimism of young people and the lack of opportunities and skills.
