Helping job seekers believe in themselves

"I used to be a freelance artist. When the pandemic hit, I had to rely on CERB and eventually, I was no longer eligible. I turned to the Y and found a career counselor who really understood my situation. She believed in me when no one else did — not even myself.

"Within 48 hours, the Y had helped me find an opportunity, and I got the job in less than a week. I can honestly say the Y gave the greatest support I could have asked for and helped me make a new, better life for myself."
