Products & Services
- Youth Economic Empowerment (YEE)
NEARC Inc. thrives to empower immigrants, newcomers, Indigenous and radicalized disadvantaged youth with supports and guidance for capacity building, economic well-being and long-term sustenance. We provide various paid placements, internships leading to employment. We provide training on Canadian workplace culture and provide employment mentorship for YEE participants and serve as Employment Liaison. We believe, once youth are economically empowered, they are more ready to any type of engagements including Social Innovation.
- Social Innovation through Reconciliation (SITR)
If NEARC Inc. has to successfully integrate the Black, Mainstream Canadian, Indigenous, and Newcomer (BMIN) youth, it must follow the path of the Truth & Reconciliation and champion some of the Calls to Action. Since these Calls to Actions were announced in 2015, we have been trying to Champion, Calls to Action # 93. NEARC Inc. with rigorous consultation with Indigenous, Newcomer Leaders, Indigenous & non-Indigenous youth, political leaders and both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities serving organizations, we have developed "Pathways to Reconciliation (P2R)" program funded by the Canadian Heritage. We are offering unique retreat opportunities outside of Winnipeg for two nights and three days. We cover all the cost.
