There are 6. 2 million Canadians with a disability and they have a lot to offer to Canada’s workforce. They have skills, passion and talents to share.
MentorAbility is a national supported employment initiative that provides an opportunity for education and awareness to be shared between employers and people experiencing a disability in communities across Canada.
Youth Culture is supporting the MentorAbility program by helping match job seekers (Protégés) with employers for mentorship. MentorAbility offers employers an opportunity to meet with individuals with a disability who have a passion and interest for their business.
Through the MentorAbility program, Youth Culture will help match a mentor with a Protégé who wants to learn more about that workplace or career. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all placements will take place virtually on Zoom.
