Attracting Impact Finance to Learning to Earning Pathways

Garrison Turner SecondMuse Capital

Join us for a dynamic discussion on the urgent need to revolutionize the youth employment system. Globally, one in five young people are disengaged from education, employment and training, reflecting the breakdown in the learning to earning pathway. Capital in this space is deployed inefficiently and unfairly. In response to this challenge, World YMCA and SecondMuse Capital have joined forces to explore the role of innovative finance within the learning to earning pathway, with the ultimate goal of guiding more underserved young people beyond skills training and into meaningful employment. Hear experts in the fields of youth development and innovative finance provide authentic perspectives on:

-The current state of capital within the youth employment system
-Challenges to attracting impact investments to the field
-Case studies and high potential opportunities for innovative finance within learning to earring programs

YMCA is the world’s oldest youth organization, reaching over 50 million people in over 12,000 communities across 120 countries. It is committed to mobilizing capital including impact investing funding to further SDGs relating to young people and to ensure young people and communities have a voice in shaping the impact investing markets.
