MISSION CAPSULE:

Presbyterians Sharing … is helping to transform the lives of people in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighbourhood. The statistics for Little Burgundy are grim: 2/3rds of children and youth live below the poverty line and 32% of students drop out before finishing high school. But Tyndale’s St. George’s employment center is helping provide community members with the tools they need to realize their dreams at every life stage. Tyndale’s employment programs not only teach job search techniques but also build self esteem and life skills. Jane shares, “I came to Tyndale during the lowest time in my life and I decided to give it a shot - I was looking for something to bring back my self confidence that would enable me to go back to the workplace. Tyndale delivered exactly what I was looking for and now I am strong, I’m back again and I am ready to go back to work.”
