The Challenges for Young People in the Americas
The Scotiabank Young People in the Community Index: Assessing the state of health, well-being and education of young people across the Americas
Young people represent our future – inventors, entrepreneurs, educators, engineers, community leaders, executives. If we truly want to have a positive impact on future generations, we need to work together to address the challenges they are facing today.
Health and education are two key foundations to the success and well-being of young people. In order to better understand the challenges facing young people in these two areas, Scotiabank, in partnership with an Advisory Council of ten leading international experts in the youth space, and GlobeScan, a global consultancy, created an Index called the Scotiabank Young People in the Community Index.
