Project 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 Project 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.
As the spots are limited, please register early. Attendance is free and lunch will be provided.
