We must come together as global citizens to co-LEARN. CO-LAB.CO-SOLVE.®, working to develop innovative solutions that will be the building blocks of a more sustainable and prosperous future for everyone.

F.U.N. Program

The program will focus on youth between the ages of 15 and 29 who are looking for work or who have already been hired, and is open to Ontario employers from the not-for-profit, public or private sectors provided they meet the employer criteria. All Ontario students and recent grads are welcome.

Flexible Upskilling Network (F.U.N) program is a blended learning program, where participants receive opportunities to combine valuable work experience with accelerated skills training. The objective of the F.U.N program is to support youth who face employment barriers by helping them develop soft and hard skills that employers are increasingly saying are hard for them to find. Prepr will be using its signature PIE Method to train the participants in Project Leadership, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and to expose them to real world business challenges. Prepr will also support participants in developing technology and digital skills that can help them secure gainful employment.
