Youth Steps 2 Digital Skills (YS2DS) is a PCPI project funded by the Federal Government through the Digital Skills for Youth Program, part of the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS).

Youth Steps 2 Digital Skills (YS2DS) connects underemployed post-secondary graduates with small to medium businesses and not-for-profit organizations where they can gain meaningful work experience to help them transition to career-oriented employment.

The program supports delivery organizations with a strong network of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs under 500 employees) and not-for-profit organizations (i.e. Employers) that can create employment opportunities for youth to gain the digital skills needed for the evolving digital economy. It is expected that the opportunities are grounded in experiences that will prepare youth to adapt to the major changes projected in tomorrow’s workplace, including emerging areas where the jobs may not yet exist such as those related to cybersecurity, the automation of knowledge tasks, big data, robotics and artificial intelligence, among others.
