In 2018, Seneca HELIX was given a $1-million grant by TD Bank through the TD Ready Challenge to launch Career Recharge – an initiative that helps re-skill and up-skill individuals at risk of job loss due to changes in the labour market. Since their launch in June 2019, they have hosted 19 workshops and have inspired over 2,800 participants to build a better career through their free workshops and their online learning series.
“We want to prepare participants to develop their ideas from a whisper of a thought into full-fledged ventures using an entrepreneurial mindset, become that resource within their organizations or as independent businesses,” said Chris Dudley, Director of Entrepreneurship at Seneca.
Through Career Recharge’s free resources, individuals have the opportunity to develop their skills in areas such as communication, problem solving and creative thinking.
To continue supporting their participants in their career journey, Career Recharge recently launched an exclusive series of free online workshops focused on the COVID-19 work environment. Participants can learn how to develop their venture ideas in the current economy, discover ways to work effectively at home and more.
