Higgins, Lorraine D.
One major cause of youth unemployment globally is a disconnect between the skills youth possess and those required by employers. This project assisted the Brotherhood of St Laurence in combating this skills gap through developing a digital work readiness skills tool. We produced a website for youth to assess their skills, visualize their growth, and match their skill set to different industries. At the close of our project we made recommendations for future developments of the tool and BSL programs.
