On October 8, 2013, the RBC Career Launch™ Program (“Program”) was announced as part of RBC's Kids Pledge. The year-long paid internship is 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 Career Launch Program Associates' (“Associates”) second rotation within the program.
The Program's second rotation, a three-month secondment to a Registered Canadian Charity (“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.
