We are excited to announce the launch of Project Beyshick 2007 (third year). The project will start on Friday, July 13th and end on Thursday July 19th. We are now accepting applications from First Nations youth in age range fo 21-35. Approximately 25 First Nations youth will be selected for this intensive job shadowing experience in Toronto. Eligible participants would have demonstrated a keen interest in business, entrepreneurship and/or corporate leadership and will be required to follow the application guidelines provided by the foundation.
If you are a successful senior executive or entrepreneur who would like to mentor native youth via the project, please contact Ashutosh Jha (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more infomration. Project Beyshick has received tremendous media coverage over the past years from Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, OMNI, CTV etc. Project Beyshick received tremendous support last year from organizations like Bell Canada, HSBC Bank, CIBC Bank, TD Bank, Royal Bank, TV Ontario, Trillium Hospital, AMJ Campbell and other large corporations.
