Our programs predominately focus on two features that address the barriers that many youth and newcomers experience such as the lack of Canadian/work experience, confidence, and the challenges presented for those that struggle to find their positionality within Peel Region. Our program tackles these barriers and more by providing the following: workshops, event planning, project coordination experience as well opportunity t volunteer with non-porifit, social enterprises and small businesses

Some of the workshops that our programs offer are employment preparation, graphic design, networking opportunities, financial literacy, government structure and civic engagement.

We are recruiting
Newcomer youth from ages 14-24
Newcomer youth from ages 18-29 who identify themselves as womxn. However, with the RBC sponsorship, we have been able to extend our age bracket to 45 years old
