YES Winnipeg Community Roundtable Event

YES was thrilled to host our second national Compass roundtable event in Winnipeg this past May! This event, part of the Citi Foundation funded YES On Demand! Initiative, brought together our charitable partners from the Winnipeg area, along with local youth, Government officials and funding partners to discuss issues surrounding youth employment today and how we as a community can work together to effect change. We heard an inspiring keynote address from Shania Pruden, and engaged our attendees in a lively panel discussion. In addition we were honoured to be joined by The Honourable Patricia A. Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour who provided opening remarks as well as Markus Chambers, Deputy Mayor for City of Winnipeg who closed our event. Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend and we look forward to hosting further community roundtables in the future!



The YES On Demand! Initiative is made possible thanks to the generosity of Citi Foundation.
