Advocating for the Toronto Youth Partnerships & Employment Program

On January 12th, 2016, our Executive Director gave a deputation at the 2016 Budget Consultation at City Hall, advocating for the Toronto Youth Cabinet's position in support of the Toronto Youth Partnerships & Employment program. The program would hire 6 mobile caseworkers who would go out and work with under-served youth and connect them with employment opportunities. 

At the time, the program was not set to be included in the 2016 Operating Budget. The week after the Budget Consultation, Councillor Gary Crawford, Chair of the Budget Committee, put forward a motion to include funding for a select number of initiatives, include the Toronto Youth Partnerships & Employment program.
