ABOUT THE PROGRAM
First Work’s Aspire Program strives to provide young Ontarians with career exploration opportunities in a variety of industries. The Aspire 2023 Program focuses on the Agri-food Sector – an opportunity for both Employers to showcase opportunities and Youth to network and learn about career pathways in Ontario’s Agri-food sector. This year, First Work is showcasing Aspire’s Farm to Fork initiative: an employers and community service providers collaborative to broaden and build a youth talent pipeline.
The Aspire Farm to Fork Career Fair series will host events in several regions across Ontario to drive youth interest in Agri-food careers – from farm to fork. Young job seekers will engage with employers and exhibitors via interactive booths and a speaker’s corner to learn about roles and in-demand careers they were previously unaware of. Employers will be hiring for summer positions, co-ops, part-time, and full-time roles that attendees can apply for.
