A program that focuses on hiring individuals with barriers to traditional means of employment to work during the C2UExpo conference? Yes, please! Meet Rachel Nelson, head of the C2UExpo Community Ambassadors Committee delegation, and the the delegation team: Landon Hoyt – Hastings Crossing BIA; Anna Migicovsky – Potluck Café; Darren Mumford – YMCA; Njeri Kontulahti – Vancity; Stephani Pritchard- WorkBC; and Stephen Dooley – SFU Surrey.
Rachel and her delegation have modeled an inclusive approach and recruited people who are facing barriers to employment to play a vital role during the C2UExpo conference. Community Ambassadors will work in various areas, such as logistical support, documentation, volunteer coordinators, and much more!
In many instances, campuses and communities
can often be thought of as separate clusters. C2UExpo 2017 has founded the
Ambassador Program to bridge this gap by allowing communities participate and
build employable skills in a reputable campus setting which the conference
takes place at. Obtaining rigorous training, Ambassadors will have the
opportunity to build capacity, and create an impactful difference both at, and
outside the C2UExpo 2017 conference.
