Following a great launch in Calgary, the Opportunity For All Youth coalition held their first event in Montreal on October 11 as “Opportunités Pour Tous Les Jeunes”. Over 150 youth attended this event to meet and interview with SE Health, Walmart, Starbucks, La Source, Teleperformance, and TELUS. This event was put on in partnership with the Société de Développement Social and with the support of Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi Montreal Centre-ville.
The CTV evening news story paints a compelling picture of the impact this event has on both youth and employers. TVA Nouvelles one of the most-watched news outlets in Quebec, also aired a 3-min story highlighting the job fair in French.
The coalition also had a chance to interview several youth who attended the event and asked them about their job search experience. Check out the video below.
