I strongly believe that companies have a social responsibility; however, this kind of business strategy is quite uncommon in my country.
"however" no meu entender, aqui nesse exemplo, é um "conjunctive adverb." (um dos que unem orações independentes e expressam relações entre elas.) Agindo como ''transitional word", e estabelecendo uma relação de contraste
entre as mesmas.
Advérbios e expressões tais como:
after all, besides, therefore,
furthermore, in addition, likewise, then, still, as a result,
nevertheless, however, in other words, on the contrary, on the other hand, etc etc...
I mean, companies used to give ing
back to my community, but are they giving enough?
'"used to give back", in my point of view.
That is an excellent way to push them to deploy humanitarian actions in benefit of our society.

[the former isn´t wrong, but in essays/papers it´s advisable to make statements in a general way, rather than in a personal one, as much as possible. It´s up to you to keep or change it, though.]
A great opportunity for the youth
, especially because the company has promised to hire the better students at the end of the course.
*youth - os jovens, mas como um todo, em geral. Uma classe, assim com "the rich" -os ricos, "the dead" - os mortos etc.
That is a good example, but again I ask to myself, is it enough? The company is getting a free advertisement and hiring qualified staff. On the other hand, the youth are getting their first job.
The youth "are", em inglês "youth" é um coletivo, sempre requer verbo sem "s".
Contudo, só pra reforçar um tópico gramatical aqui, um verbo poderia ser com "s" após "youth" dependendo do que se quer dizer. Exemplo: The youth of the world is the answer to this question. (os jovens do mundo é a resposta da questão...)
The youth of the world is the answer to this question.
Já "The youth of the world are the answer to this question.
, ficaria estranho. Para dar certo, teria que mudar para :
The youth of the world "are" the answers to this question.
E, finalmente, se pode ainda dizer "youths" (no plural e tudo) no sentido de "jovens", cada um de um certo total (digamos três jovens, por exemplo):
