Pathways to Progress
Approximately 71 million youth globally are actively seeking meaningful employment.
Pathways to Progress
Pathways to Progress is a job skills-building initiative that addresses the persistent, global issue of youth unemployment. Through Citi Foundation philanthropic investments, employee volunteers, career development opportunities, and research, Pathways to Progress aims to address the skills mismatch and equip young people, particularly those from underserved communities, with the skills and networks needed to succeed in today’s rapidly changing economy. Since launching Pathways to Progress in 2014, the Citi Foundation has invested more than $194 million globally in workforce preparation.
In Australia, our Citi Foundation Grant partners include:
Brotherhood of St Laurence - "Creating Futures for Youth" supports young people in their transition from learning to employment through employment skills training and mentoring.
Foundation for Young Australians - the "Enterprise Skills Initiative" supports young people to develop enterprise skills, career management skills and entrepreneurial capabilities for self employment.
Social Ventures Australia - "Evidence for Employment" works with stakeholders to identify, better understand, and promote the activities that work best to improve employment outcomes for at-risk and marginalised youth.
The Smith Family - "Ready for Work", supports young people who are at school but likely to leave school without a post school pathway. The program coaches them to develop a career plan and connects them to post school options.
In September 2020, the Citi Foundation announced an additional $100 million, three-year commitment to provide economic opportunities for young people. In the new iteration of Pathways to Progress, the Citi Foundation will double down its efforts to improve economic and employment opportunities for young people in underserved communities around the world.
