Opportunity For All Youth Program Launches In Toronto
On June 28th, 2018 the Opportunity for All Youth coalition held the first ever launch event in Toronto’s Rexdale neighbourhood at the Albion Libary.
Eager, young job seekers from all over the Toronto area and as far as Whitby attended. In total 402 youth attended the event and had the opportunity to meet with hiring staff from: HMS Host, Starbucks, Telus, Teleperformance, Tridel, The Source, and Walmart
Onsite one-on-one and group interviews were held all morning.
During the afternoon, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a town hall with the youth attendees and spoke to them about unemployment, housing, refugees, and more.
