Good Work! Book Launch
CERIC held a book launch on February 9th 2006 to unveil CERIC's first publication, authored by Nancy Schaefer - Good Work: Get a GREAT JOB or be your OWN BOSS: a young person's guide.
Good Work! is a partnership between CERIC and YES (Youth Employment Service). Ms. Schaefer, President of YES worked with former graduates of YES services to assemble the wealth of valuable information and advice found in this book. The guide gives readers a first hand appreciation of what youth face in finding work as well as being a valuable resource for those in the career, counselling and employment fields.
With almost 150 people in attendance, including MP Olivia Chow (Trinity-Spadina), YES Board members, staff, community colleagues and recent grads from YES’ BIZSTART program, the event at the Social Bar on Toronto’s hip Queen St. W. was a great success. Several BIZSTART grads displayed their products at the event, including Anthony Stanberry, CEO of Freeze DNA, whose ‘how-to’ comic book was recently picked up by two major retailers.
