NextStep is a multi-dimensional mentorship intervention designed to help highly educated, trained, and unemployed British Columbians better integrate into BC’s labour market. These individuals have been referred to by some researchers as “Poorly Integrated New Entrants” (PINEs). The YWCA Metro Vancouver is responsible for the development and implementation of NextStep. The intervention includes different types of mentorship programs to support better career development opportunities. The BC Centre for Employment Excellence (Centre), commissioned by the YWCA, is conducting the research and evaluation.
