Help tackle employment barriers for young people

The Canadian National Exhibition Foundation is committed to creating success in the job market for vulnerable young people. Join with us to help make a difference in the lives of 50 youth this summer through our Pathways to Job Readiness youth training and employment program.

The Pathways to Job Readiness Program builds on the tradition of the CNE as a provider of more than 5,000 employment opportunities each summer for generations of young people. Through the Pathways initiative, we work collaboratively with community agency partners to help build the capacity of young Canadians.

Building on the success of our pilot program in the summer of 2019, our goal is expand the Pathways to Job Readiness Program to provide wraparound supports for 50 vulnerable youth, 14 to 29 years of age, who struggle with barriers to finding employment.

We gratefully acknowledge our agency partners and the support by the City of Toronto, Partnerships to Advance Youth Employment (PAYE), Youth Employment Partners (YEP), and the RBC Foundation’s Future Launch Program, Helping to Prepare Youth for the Future of Work.
