Fresh Perspective

For Newcomer Youth (12+)

Fresh Perspective is a specialized financial, employment and life skills program designed to facilitate the participation of newcomer youth in meaningful mentorship, personal development and employment related engagements.


Fresh Perspective’s vision is threefold:

  • Improving economic independence through financial education.
  • Improving education through access to quality training.
  • Improving secure employment through professional connections.

Our program enhances foundational and transferable skills, reduces barriers to employment, provides access to valuable real-world experiences and prepares newcomer youth for leadership roles within their community. Program is individual based, goal driven, inclusive, and most of all supports the needs of newcomer youth.

As a community, we have come far when supporting our diverse youth. We recognize barriers still exist within traditional education, volunteer and work settings. Our priority is to deliver an inclusive, specialized program that is holistic, experiential and barrier free allowing newcomer youth to grow personally and professionally.

We are ready to partner with individuals, employers and community organizations who are ready to join our amazing journey of inclusion. We believe in innovation and as a result we do things differently. Status quo is no longer good enough for fair, just and equitable communities. We are here and ready to collaborate with others aligned with this mission and value.

Your support allows more newcomer youth to participate in this specialized program and gain access to essential skills! Partnership benefits to your organization include but not limited to:

  • Supporting newcomer youth’s economic independence and career trajectory.
  • Recognition on The Dollar Detectives’ webpage, social media and campaign events.
  • Branding exposure as a committed partner who is passionate about advancing inclusion.
  • Building and enhancing a purposeful and inclusive organizational culture.

To ensure representation, specialization and relevancy, Fresh Perspective is overseen by a committee that are first- or second-generation Canadians.  Please email us at for further details about this program and how you can make a difference for young black adults!
