Bringing a student into your organization adds new thinking and fresh energy, but it can be challenging to find the right person and work with them in a meaningful way. We are here to help you navigate that process.
TalentED YYC is here to support you in developing your student opportunity, accessing funding, and engaging student talent that drives your organization forward.
About the Project

The pilot will run from 2022 to 2025 and consists of a team to support the project, digital resources for employers, a centralized portal to post student opportunities, and third-party evaluation.
