Divora’s Story

An ISANS Impact Story

Divora Debesay Tekie is from Eritrea, and she came to Canada with her family.

As a young person in a new country, Divora had trouble at first finding a job, so she started taking advantage of ISANS Employment and Bridging Services. Through them, she found that the Immigrant Youth Employability Project (IYEP) was just what she needed to start making her way.

Watch this video to hear how IYEP empowered Divora to put herself out there, grow her skills through meaningful employment, and make confident decisions about her education and career.

"After I completed the IYEP [Immigrant Youth Employability Project] training, I started my new work placement at Unlooweg Education Centre as an admin assistant. This was my first job in Canada and it was very exciting."
