Welcome to


about img


We are a non profit organization that aims to get youth at risk of poverty and new immigrants struggling financially gain meaningful employment so they are able to get back on their feet. Unlike other agencies, we cater to the specific needs of the individual rather than simply running a mass resume workshop. We have drop in sessions at the Ottawa Library, and we have partnerships with Dress for Success Ottawa, and Suits His Style and many other local businesses help us better provide for our clients’ needs.

Regardless of where you are in your employment journey, we can help. Our drop in and workshop services include getting government identification, setting up bank accounts, searching for job opportunities, writing resumes and cover letters, practising for interviews, getting professional clothing, and more! Everyone is welcome.
