Redesign Rupert joins the Rising Stars!
We’re excited to announce our official partnership with the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce on the Rising Stars program!
Rising Stars is a unique mentorship program planned in partnership with both Coast Mountain College and School District #52, with support from TD Canada and the Prince Rupert Toastmasters club. By matching students with mentors in Prince Rupert’s business community, Rising Stars helps them plan for the future and learn new skills in a real world environment.
Part of our mandate in Phase II of Redesign Rupert is looking at Human Capital, and we believe that one of the best ways to plan for a sustainable future workforce is to start with our local youth. We’re excited to work with the Chamber of Commerce to continue building the Rising Stars program and supporting youth in finding exciting local career opportunities.
“Redesign Rupert’s partnership with the Rising Stars program has allowed the program to evolve into a localized strategy to potentially recruit and retain young and future skilled workers that live and grow up in Prince Rupert.” - Anthony Yecyec, Manager, Prince Rupert & District Chamber of Commerce.
