Join us on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 for a day of skills development, employer networking and mentorship for youth in Toronto!
As the spots are limited, please register early. Attendance is free and lunch will be provided.
Aspire is a career exploration initiative connecting vulnerable young people to careers and industries they would otherwise never experience. In doing so, youth broaden their career aspirations based on enhanced industry knowledge of potential opportunities. Through Aspire, First Work proposes to expand from a successful one-day event in Toronto to a comprehensive program delivered across Ontario. Aspire incorporates youth leadership development with contextualized skills, peer and career mentorship and industry-informed sector-strategy development in three cities over one year supporting 350 youth. The combination of these elements affords young people career exposure and limitless prospects of exploration, network building, and reflection.
Aspire will reshape the way youth think about career paths by providing new, well coordinated and industry supported program to fuel the curiosity and exploration of future career options and pathways. Modeled as an alternative to take your kids to work day, the Summit will involve real employers, skill development, and mentorship, seminars and training sessions, and provide access and knowledge into the career industries of Hospitality, tourism, Entrepreneurship amongst others.
