Starbucks Youth Networking Series 

ACCES Employment has launched a new event series, sponsored by Starbucks Foundation to help support Newcomer and Refugee Youth. The series is designed to provide youth with expert advice on networking and building their connections to find employment and launch their careers. The events focus on helping newcomers with their networking skills including: how to make a meaningful introduction, engaging in conversation, being aware of body language, and how to effectively follow-up with employers. 

The inaugural event for the series took place in December 2017 at the ACCES Employment Toronto Office. The event featured guest speaker Rashmi Vohra, Associate Vice President, Learning & Development, TD Bank Group. We were excited to have a great turn out and the feedback we received was extremely positive. The youth in attendance learned a lot from Rashmi and are looking forward to attending future events in the series to gain as much insight as possible.
