NextGEN Youth Initiative

What is NextGEN?

The NextGEN Youth Initiative will serve as a weekly drop-in centre located at our main site at 180 Westmoreland Avenue. This initiative is specifically designed for newcomer youth to receive skills development, employment assistance and mentorship. This initiative will run until the end of March. 

3 Pillars

We aim to operate under these three pillars: 

Skill Development Our participants will receive access to tailored workshops focused on multi-media, computer literacy and leadership
Employment Assistance Our participants will receive support from our Program Staff in resume building and job interview preparation
Educational Assistance Our participants will receive homework assistance and access to tutoring services
