Youth Employment: Barriers and Opportunities @ Online
Sep 18 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
What are the barriers to meaningful employment for young people in our communities? How can we support youth in overcoming these barriers and meeting the demands of an ever-changing labour market? In Ontario, the unemployment rate of young people between the ages of 15-24 is twice the unemployment rate of the general population; the rate of youth not in employment, education or training (NEET) was 11.1% in 2016. Precarious employment, unemployment, and underemployment impact outcomes for young people, particularly those who face systemic barriers and forms of discrimination based on race, gender, ability, language or identity. Join YouthREX for this conversation about barriers to employment, and learn how the youth sector can promote pathways to meaningful employment and improve youth wellbeing. This webinar will feature: Tamara Balan, Associate Vice President, CivicAction & Escalator: Jobs for Youth Facing Barriers Lucas Gordon, Team Lead, RedReach Osivue Isteumah, Equity & Employment Lead (2018-2019), and Mana Sadeghipour, Equity & Employment Lead (2017-2018), Toronto Youth Cabinet Gladys Okine, Executive Director, First Work This webinar is hosted by YouthREX.

The Grimsby House That Paint Built Wayne Mullins – Grimsby Historical Archives

69 Main Street East in Grimsby is a house with a history. Commissioned by American owners, the house was built in a California design in the early 1920’s. In the 1930’s the second family to own the house, who were also American, became the owners of the Grimsby Brick and Tile Works. The house, designed by an eminent architect, appears to have other mysteries. Why was it built in Grimsby? Why the design? And what was the source of the American money?

This event is hosted by the Grimsby Historical Society.
