When BNI All Business Networkers heard of a Grade 12 student (Amel from Denis O’Connor High School in Ajax, Ontario) in need they took action by giving back.
Based on his performance, Amel’s grade 12 co-op placement offered him the opportunity to apprentice at the auto dealership as a Mechanic. The unfortunate part of this is that Amel did not have the support or financial backing to purchase the tools needed to accept this apprenticeship.
The Local Businesses owners (BNI members) collected enough funds to pay for the tools needed and presented them to Amel. The Chapter is always looking for ways to give back. “Helping someone in need get a better start at their first job is the right thing to do!"
A special thanks to Bessada Kia of Pickering, Ontario who also donated generously when they heard of the initiative through one of the BNI members.
