One Million Acts of Innovation Attacks Youth Unemployment in Canada With Their Program “Flourish”

With youth unemployment fluctuating between 16 and 17.1 % in 2013, One Million Acts of Innovation is responding and encouraging youth to sign up for their bridging program called “Flourish.”

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 06, 2013

Flourish is a program for students or recent graduates of colleges and universities who want to use their creative skills to help interesting companies grow. It is unique in the way it trains participants in comprehensive social media marketing for free. In an attempt to combat youth unemployment, Flourish is looking to provide leadership opportunities and above average income for the youth.

Flourish carefully selects students and then provides them with advanced social media training. Participants are then parachuted into companies who need part time assistance in social media. It is a 4-5 month internship program that gets students invaluable experience in the business world.

"Students learn new and in demand skills in social media, get introduced to corporate CEO’s and business owners and build their own social media portfolio" One Million Acts of Innovation Co-founder, Taimour Zaman described. "Students learn the needs of various businesses and get closer to their dream job." The program even helps students who may be confused as to what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

This program is tested and successful, as it amplifies average marketing resources by providing students training on advanced social media skill set and gets them real world experience.
