Event description


Are you an employment service provider looking to amplify your youth’s opportunities? Do it in just one day at YouthConnect 2018!

This hands-on day will give you and your youth a behind the scenes look at various sectors and the skills needed to get a foot in the door. New this year is a greater focus on career and skills exploration. With LinkedIn and employer representatives at your side to give you the latest tips and tricks, you’ll work with youth in real-time to help them explore career options, skills for success, and learn how to package their skills to land that next opportunity!

Attendees will also get access to LinkedIn Learning and a YouthConnect Personal Branding certificate they can use to showcase their new skills on their LinkedIn profile.

To attend, please register for a ticket above. Once you start registration, you'll have the option to let us know how many youth you'd like to bring and you'll be able to fill in their details.

See the details and the full schedule here!

YouthConnect is brought to you by the CivicAction Leadership Foundation and LinkedIn Canada, in partnership with Ryerson University, and the City of Toronto.
