Support our Ottawa Race Weekend team!
Dear CCI Friend,

I want to share some exciting news with you.

CCI, led by a group of young newcomers, is participating in Ottawa Race Weekend.

For the young newcomers, it’s more than an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for CCI. It’s also an opportunity to make friends, have fun and learn about a well-loved Ottawa event.

All funds raised will be used in our Youth Program. Building a new life in a strange country can be overwhelming. Our Youth Program helps young newcomers connect to their community. We help them find part-time jobs, succeed in school, play sports, attend events and more. Our goal is to help them feel at home in Ottawa.

Please make a donation this month to help our young newcomer race team.

Sincerely,

Kindest regards,

Carl Nicholson
Executive Director
Helping young newcomers find their first job
Newcomers to Ottawa all have one thing in common. They want to give back to their community as soon as possible. That’s true of young newcomers as well. That’s why our Youth Program has a dedicated team to help young people get ready for the job market.

Ana is one of our youth employment specialists. She works one-on-one with young newcomers to help them find a job. Ana helps them with resumes, interviews, dressing for success, and knowing where to look.

She also connects young newcomers to established workers in the fields they're interested in. It's an opportunity for a young newcomer to discover more about a business and what skills they need.

If you would like to support the work of our Youth Program, please make a donation to our Ottawa Race Weekend youth team .
