Connecting Families, Discovering Opportunities
LinkYid integrates newly arrived Jewish immigrants or emerging professionals/ entrepreneurs with well-established families and mentors in British Columbia.
We need community members to offer their support to people who are beginning a new chapter in their lives. As Jews, we are obligated to ensure that no Jew in our community is left alone without the assistance they need.
What is LinkYid?
New to Vancouver, or Beginning Your Career? Join LinkYid
LinkYid is a program that provides connections with people who are new to Vancouver who are looking for employment opportunities or wanting to build a social network within the Jewish Community.
Many families and individuals new to Vancouver left behind employment and social ties, only to feel isolated in a new city, without family, friends, and the assistance they need to prosper in their careers and social lives. They have unique skill sets and valuable experience, but have limited opportunities to apply their expertise due to a shortage of connections.
Our volunteers are committed to learning about participants’ skills and background information to be able to make introductions to community members with networks that can help.
We Are Looking for Hosts & Mentors
We are in search of people in our community network to join LinkYid as hosts and mentors. Established families and individuals will oversee the transition of a newly arrived people to Vancouver by offering welcoming support.
Through the development of a mentoring relationship, both hosts and newcomers will mutually benefit from the partnership.
Find out how you can get involved in LinkYid and help play a key role in improving our Jewish community, one family, one person at a time.
