Helping Youth Navigate an Unprecedented Labour Market
When he came to Canada from Sri Lanka, Moses wanted to fit in, feel accepted, and help support his family financially.
Joining the YMCA Newcomer Youth Leadership Development program opened a paid internship opportunity for Moses, where he gained real work experience. He then put his freshly honed skills to use in the YMCA Youth Job Connection Program, completing pre-employment workshops and a job placement.
“The Y has made me the person I am today and it’s a second home to me,” says Moses.
When you give to the Y, you help young newcomers like Moses ignite their true potential.
