Over 120 students and nearly three dozen employers gathered at the Rotary Club of Picton Hall on Thursday for a little chat.
An employee-employer meet, great and strategy session entitled CHAT (Conversation to Help Align Teamwork) brought Grade 10-12 students from Prince Edward Collegiate Institute, Quinte Secondary and Nicholson Collegiate together with business owners and leaders in order to bridge gaps and help each side understand the other.
Lisa Rashotte of Community Living Prince Edward was one of the event’s organizers and she hoped to bridge several gaps that exist
Community Living Prince Edward was honoured to be selected as one of six organizations from across Ontario to participate in a demonstration project in partnership with Community Living Windsor and A Centre for Conscious Care, founded by Peter Marx.
