ACCES Employment’s 2015 United Way Campaign
ACCES Employment has just wrapped up our annual United Way fundraising campaign.   The campaign was highly successful as we once again surpassed our target and raised over $51,000 for United Way Toronto & York Region and United Way Peel. 
The money was raised through numerous fun and creative activities that fed both appetite and musical tastes!  
The campaign also led to ACCES's nomination for a spirit award by Toronto York Region United Way because of how committed we are to United Way and the difference they make in our community. 
A big congratulations and thank you goes out to the ACCES United Way Team and all staff for their tremendous support of the campaign.

Tatiana moved to Canada from Brazil in early 2015 hopeful she could continue her successful career as a business analyst.  She began her job search online, sending out numerous applications.  Not seeing any results, Tatiana knew she needed a different approach. Following a lead from a friend who had participated in the IT Connections program at ACCES Employment, Tatiana visited ACCES to inquire about how bridging programs might be beneficial for her.  Tatiana was accepted into the Leadership Connections program designed to help participants with more senior experience to prepare for similar roles in Canada.  The program focuses on leadership in the Canadian context, with an emphasis on developing soft skills, workplace communication, and creating opportunities for participants to connect with employers who are hiring.  As a newcomer and as a women, finding a role that reflects her leadership experience would be the next step in her journey.
