06 DEC 2018: Prince's Trust Canada, a national charity established by The Prince of Wales,  has announced a new Canada wide partnership with Marriott International that will support youth employment and grow the hospitality-talent pool across the country. The Prince's Trust Canada works with employer partners like Marriott International to link young people facing barriers to employment with meaningful employment opportunities. 

The two organizations have run a successful pilot project in Toronto.

The new ‘Get Into Hospitality’ program saw 12 under-employed and underserved young people

in Toronto get two weeks of rigorous  classroom training and two weeks of fully paid job shadowing training at Toronto area hotels. The young people finished the program with new skills, improved confidence and jobs.

Marriott International committed to hiring at least 50 percent of the program participants.
