Analyzing economic and social outcomes of Dexterra’s Indigenous youth employment program
Outland, a division of Dexterra, is proud to share the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) research project, Success After Camp: Analyzing Economic and Social Outcomes among Outland Youth Employment Program Participants Started in 2000. This report highlights the many successes and positive impacts of OYEP’s local, community-driven initiative that began out of Thunder Bay in 2000. Since then, OYEP has grown into a national network of land-based education, training and work experience for Indigenous youth.
In 2020, the program will offer its largest delivery to date with seven programs operating across the country. This year, over 150 Indigenous youth from BC, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario will be employed by OYEP representing over 100 Indigenous communities. Click here to visit the newly launched OYEP website.
