Thanks to the generosity of Citi Canada and the Citi Foundation, YES is thrilled to announce our new YES on Demand program!
YES on Demand seeks to address the persistent issue of youth unemployment with three proven, evidence based solutions: mentorship, online employability and entrepreneurship skills training and specialized programming for youth with mental health issues.
This grant, part of Citi’s global Pathways to Progress initiative, will help to ensure YES clients will have access to these three critical resources. Additionally, this grant will enable YES to share these resources with other non-profits through a knowledge transfer and training program.
Over the next year, 900 youth will participate in the YES on Demand program and become equipped with the skills to enhance their employability!
YES is extremely grateful for our partnership with the Citi Foundation and their shared commitment in helping young people secure jobs, begin to engage in the formal economy, and contribute positively to their cities.
We look forward to changing more lives… forever through YES on Demand.
