Mentor youth and young adults as they overcome barriers between them and succeeding in the workplace! Read Hilda's story, and see how your friendship and support could make a difference.

In Winnipeg’s Elmwood community, and across the city, vulnerable youth and young adults can face significant barriers on the path to employment. For newcomers, indigenous youth, youth from low-income backgrounds and those living with disabilities, a desire to succeed at work may not be enough to overcome the challenges they face—particularly when it can be difficult to gain relevant experience.

At Sam’s Place, a vibrant café and bookstore in Elmwood, MCC offers a supportive and welcoming environment where youth—including those who face barriers to employment—can gain new skills and find a caring community. Our Youth Program offers training and mentorship so youth can develop the skills and confidence to succeed in a workplace. Today, dozens of youth in the city are in full time jobs after their volunteer experience at Sam’s Place.

None of that happens without mentors to work alongside them and help them build the confidence and skills they need!
