Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre Received $197,900 Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant for The Mentoring Partnership Program

On Friday, September 30th, local MPP Lorne Coe stopped by the Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre’s (DRUHC) 33rd AGM. One of the highlights of the meeting was officially announcing how a three-year, $197,900 Grow grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, made earlier this year, will make a big difference for DRUHC’s The Mentorship Program (TMP). Funds from the grant will enable the group to hire an additional Mentoring Coach for The Mentoring Partnership, which is offered at all of DRUHC’s locations.

The Mentoring Partnership is the initiative of the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC). TMP brings together Internationally Trained Skilled Newcomers and Established Professionals in Occupation-Specific Mentoring Relationships. Mentors assist mentees in building a professional network, gaining local knowledge and understanding of workplace culture.

Executive Director of the Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre, Maralyn Tassone, provided a brief overview of the increased DRUHC service to internationally trained professionals thanks to the Ontario Trillium Grant. Beth Clarke, TRIEC Director of Employer Programs, outlined during her speech The Mentoring Partnership program and the positive service impact to newcomers to Canada.
