All interviews will be prescheduled - spots are limited.

Opportunity for All Youth

Opportunity For All Youth is a national coalition which originated with the MaRS Solutions Lab in Toronto to address youth unemployment. The initiative was launched locally with The City of Calgary Youth Employment Centre (YEC) in September 2018. To date, CERT Logistics, Cintas, Fairmont Palliser, HMS Host, Hyatt Regency, Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire, Starbucks, TELUS, The Source and Walmart have joined the coalition in Calgary.

Over five years, the aim of the coalition is to provide opportunities for 40,000 NEET (not in employment, education or training) youth who face barriers to entering the workforce across Canada. This goal will be achieved through partnerships between employers, employment agencies, governments and foundations. It focuses on the hiring, retention and career progression of youth who are job-ready but have challenges to obtaining employment.

In partnership with the coalition employers, YEC hosts Opportunity For All Youth hiring events year-round.

Youth ages 16-24 are encouraged to drop in to YEC (2nd floor, 315 10th Ave SE) for more information on upcoming events.
