Career Launch for Immigrant Professionals and Skilled Workers
12-Week Paid Career-Related Internships
These full-time, paid internships are for youth who are facing barriers in finding full-time, career-related employment.
The Winnipeg Connector Partnership had its soft launch on November 22, 2017, in conjunction with Success Skills Centre’s Employer Appreciation event held at the Polo Park Canad Inn, where 67 Winnipeg employers were honoured. The plan for Success Skills Centre to start a Connector Program goes back to 2014 through the Halifax Partnership. Monika G. Feist, SSC CEO and Robyn Webb, Executive Director of the National Connector Program were in communication for several years before signing an agreement in 2016; however, funding for the program was a challenge. Actual implementation of the program occurred at the end of 2017. Presently, the program receives no funding, but it is a commitment of SSC as the lead agency to fill a gap that is sorely needed by immigrants to make networking and mentoring connections in Winnipeg.
