Young people form one of the most active groups in society, and play a major role in building communities. In turn, a strong community can facilitate better interaction and collaboration, focus people’s energy in constructive endeavours, and provide a career springboard. How are the public and private sectors working with young people via various communities? How is a community built, and how can doing so provide a foundation for a career? What role do higher education institutions and the government play in bringing young people together?
