Youth Got Their Hustle On!

October 25, 2006

"Show me there's opportunities in this world!" declared Tsegai Kifle, as he and over 400 youth came together to network and discover the many economic opportunities that Toronto has to offer at the two-day youth economic opportunities forum - Get Your Hustle On.

The forum, held on October 11 and 12, featured 30 speakers, 35 exhibitors and a number of community agency representatives, employers, TCHC staff and Board members.

In addition to the exhibitors, guest speakers and entrepreneurs, Kifle and youth participants of hsi's youth training program spoke to a full house on issues facing youth employment and economic opportunities.

The Toronto Community Housing sponsored forum also featured workshops that covered topics such as, apprenticeship, credit, starting a small business, and how employers or agencies can effectively engage youth.

Youth and employers agree; it was a great success!
