Participants will have access to a variety of employment datasets and will be challenged to use these datasets to build data visualizations, models, or other tools that can help policymakers, educators, and other stakeholders better understand and address youth employment issues such as barriers related to education,  financial constraints, skills and education mismatch, undignified unemployment and a lack of job opportunities in certain sectors.
