At the CEE Centre for Young Black Professionals, we actively contribute to the development of Canada by addressing economic and social barriers faced by Black youth aged 14 and over. Our mission is to create a society and economy where Black youth can achieve financial prosperity and a high quality of life for themselves and their families.
To achieve this, we collaborate with Black youth, employers, and the broader community in various ways:
We offer career training programs in six labor market gaps, namely Technology, Entertainment, Social Services, Finance, Trades, and Hospitality. Our holistic, person-centered, and culturally relevant approaches aim to improve the careers, education, and empowerment of Black youth in Canada.
Through our Sector Leadership department, we strengthen the leadership and organizational capacity of B3 serving nonprofits in Toronto's social service sector. We provide training programs such as the CEE Essentials Suite and actively participate in civic engagement initiatives like round tables, councils, and community projects. We are also the project lead for the Black To The Future Community of Practice.
We are continuously launching initiatives to support Black youth. CEE Talent allows employers to hire CEE alumni for creative projects or work in the labor gaps where we provide programming.
