RedReach: A new job site for youth

RedReach, a job search site for youth was launched on May 28, 2018 by Grade 12 student Lucas Gordon, 17, and Alexander Sundiev, a 28-year-old Mohawk College grad.

The duo developed RedReach at the Forge, a business incubator at McMaster Innovation Park.

The website is free for students and employers, and will eventually move to a revenue model by charging employers who want their jobs featured prominently on the site.

Students have free access to listings in five categories: loading and stocking, hospitality, management and supervision, education and tutoring, and other.
