New HSBC Career Accelerator Program!
With the onset of automation and augmentation as well as an aging workforce we need to prepare youth for the jobs of the future. YES is thrilled to announce a new partnership with HSBC to help do just that!
The HSBC Career Accelerator Program will provide youth facing multiple barriers to employment with specialized pre-employment training to help them obtain the soft skills and global skills needed for the labour market of today and the future. The program will encompass four key elements with youth receiving customized future pre-employment skills training, digital literacy skills training, paid work placements in a profession/ industry that is less prone to future automation OR augmentation, and access to wrap around supports including mentors. Thanks to HSBC’s generosity, the program will not only support youth in the Greater Toronto Area, but will also impact youth nationally across Canada.
YES is extremely grateful to HSBC for all their incredible support and we look forward to accelerating the careers of youth together!
