Congratulations to the YMCA of Greater Toronto for being named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2017. This is the seventh consecutive year the Association has earned the honour. In addition, the Association was also chosen as one of Canada’s Best Employers for Recent Graduates and selected to be featured in the Career Directory, a guide to entry-level recruitment for recent college and university graduates. “Young people are the future of our communities and by sowing seeds for their development, we are investing in a healthy future for everyone,” says Medhat Mahdy, President and CEO, YMCA of Greater Toronto and President, YMCA Ontario. “While unemployment rates for young people remain at twice the rate for adults, it is a competitive marketplace for the talented and committed. We know our staff are the ‘secret sauce’ in our delivery of quality programs to GTA residents—and we need to attract those with the skill, the passion and the commitment to rise to the challenge.”
