HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

St Stephen’s Community House teamed up with Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services and the University of Toronto in the summer of 2015 to conduct a youth-led, community based study: the Youth Unemployment Research Project (YURP). The study was focused on youth living in low-income neighbourhoods along Jane Street who are NEET (Neither Employed or in Education or Training). or at risk of being NEET. Drawing on this study, this report, Tired of the Hustle: Youth Voices on Unemployment, presents important qualitative evidence on how racialized youth from low-income neighbourhoods in Toronto become NEET, how being NEET impacts youth and their families, and how these youth hustle in response to the systemic barriers they face to employment and employment services.
