Group Name: MicroSkills – Youth Welcoming Centre
Description: Community MicroSkills Development Centre is a non-profit organization that has served communities in Toronto and surrounding areas since 1984. They provide settlement, employment, and self-employment services to individuals, with priority to the needs of immigrants, youth, visible minority people, and low-income women.
Our Youth Welcoming Centre is a space that offers programming where youth feel welcomed, supported and valued by the community where they live. The Centre reaches out to youth who are new in Canada, as well as youth who are established in their community, and engages them in activities for mutual sharing, learning, and peer support. MicroSkills implements the Youth Welcoming model not only in the Centre itself, located at Dixon and Islington, but also in the other offsite locations where our youth services are delivered, such as in local schools, multi-service centers and hubs. Our youth services are available from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, and include:
- Education and Career Support
- Physical, Nutrition & Wellness Program
- English Conversation Starters
- Leadership and Volunteer Development
- Parent Engagement
- Empowered Girls Clubs
- Information, Support and Referral Services
- Rexdale ProTech Media Centre
- Cook Pre-apprenticeship Program
