In late August, Nourish, in partnership with the New Canadians Centre, piloted a kitchen-based employment training with eight newcomer youth. What were the ingredients that helped these youth to shine?
We started by asking what matters to them. The youth wanted to learn about their workplace rights. They also wanted to learn ways to become more employable - they wanted to learn about their responsibilities. So, we called the training “Know Yourself, Know Your Rights, Know Your Responsibilities.”
