Katimavik is thrilled to work with RBC Future Launch and provide more opportunities and mentorship for National Experience ParticipantsKatimavik Chief Executive Officer John-Frederick Cameron
“Katimavik participants have been undeterred by the obstacles brought forth by a global pandemic, instead focusing on how they could give back to communities while strictly adhering to all health guidelines and protocols.”
“Since March, National Experience Participants have selflessly volunteered over 22,000 hours across the country. As the world continues to evolve, they will be more equipped than ever. We thank RBC for its leadership and for its investment in Canadian youth. We are honoured to be a partner with RBC in this effort.”
Whether it’s retraining or starting fresh, it’s clear that the skills needed to excel in today’s workplace are changing. That’s what RBC Future Launch is all about, and through our partnership with Katimavik, we hope to enable young people to identify, articulate and build their skills—and help young Canadians develop them.Mark Beckles, Senior Director, Youth Strategy and Innovation, RBC
Since relaunching in 2018, Katimavik has been grateful for RBC’s continued support and looks forward to another opportunity to work together in empowering young leaders.
RBC Future Launch is a 10-year, $500 million commitment to empower Canadian youth for the jobs of tomorrow. With a focus on networking, skills development, practical work experience and mental wellbeing supports and services, the initiative aims to help break down the barriers facing young people.
