Charitable Organizations — Volunteer Rotation

Build awareness of the charitable sector with the RBC Career Launch volunteer rotation

On October 8, the RBC Career Launch™ Program was announced as part of RBC's Believe in Kids Pledge, designed to help break the "no experience — no job" cycle that many young graduates face. A key insight we gained while developing the program was that youth across Canada share RBC's passion for making a real difference in the community; an opportunity provided during the Associates' volunteer rotation within the program.

The Program's volunteer rotation, a three-month secondment to a Registered Canadian Charity, will focus on building the Associates' awareness of the charitable sector while providing them the opportunity to gain valuable skills in the areas of project management, communication, collaboration, and creative thinking.
