Youth Opportunity: removing barriers to employment
In 2018, McDonald’s set a global goal to reduce barriers to employment for two-million young people by 2025, through pre-employment job readiness training, employment opportunities and workplace development programs. In addition to providing job opportunities that young people need to kick start their career, the company and participating Franchisees are expanding existing training and education programs to go beyond those they hire. In partnership with local community organizations and the International Youth Foundation (IYF), McDonald’s is rolling out a new pre-employment job readiness training program designed to help young people develop the competencies employers are looking for in entry-level employees.
