2017 Game Changers Award Nominations

Every year, Nova Scotia sees a net loss of 1,300 young professionals between the ages of 19-29, taking their vision, talent, energy, and drive with them. Youth retention is one of our greatest challenges and best opportunities for long-term economic growth. In the Game Changers Action Plan, every business has a role to play in retaining our youth.

However, we know there are already many game changing companies that are leaders in youth retention and we want to know who you are! 

We are pleased to launch the call for nominations for the Best Youth Employer and Experiential Learning awards for private-sector or community organizations in Halifax. We will present three awards in each category for:

  • Small Business/Organization (< 25 employees)
  • Medium Business/Organization (25 - 100 employees)
  • Large Business/Organization (100+ employees)

Now in its second year, the Game Changers Awards Gala on October 30th, 2017, recognizes those exceptional businesses that demonstrate leadership in hiring youth (young professionals aged 19-29), providing experiential learning opportunities and inspiring other businesses to take action. 

All award nominees will be promoted at the Game Changers Awards Gala and in various print and online media as a youth friendly organization.
