TORONTO, January 25, 2023 (Newswire.com) - NIDO - NEXIM International Development Organization - created a series of events for Black History Month to promote the 4Es - Education, Environment, Equality and Economic Sustainability. The series of events launches with a NIDO Panel Discussion at Hart House (U of T), which seeks to examine How Access to Education Enhances Gender Equity, on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. The panel discussion features Margaret Hachey (GroYourBiz), Cassandra Dorrington (CAMSC), Charlene Forde (Melanated Vegan), Karen Francis (Segun Water Systems), Kamshuka (The Conscious Warriors), Anna Chowthi (Merge PM&L), and Suubi Fusion Troupe (Ugandan youth performing arts group).
NIDO culminates the series of events with Stories of The Diaspora: Unlocking & Empowering Our Youth presentations at Mohawk College on Monday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. & The Royal Theatre on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. This event features: Minnijean Brown-Trickey, a civil rights legend; Emmanuel Jal, a war child survivor, peace ambassador and music artist; and Suubi Fusion Troupe.
The Stories of the Diaspora: Unlocking and Empowering Our Youth event will include Minnijean Brown-Trickey and Emmanuel Jal reflecting on global historical events which deprived youth of their fundamental human rights. They'll speak about how access to education played a pivotal role in their redemptive journeys.
The event will then shift its focus to music and dance. NIDO's secondary school students created a dance troupe. The dance troupe started because of a desire to find different ways for students to open up and share their experiences, however traumatic, to heal and move on. The dance troupe uses African music and drums for storytelling. The Ugandan youth from the Suubi Fusion Troupe and Emmanuel Jal will celebrate African tradition and evolving global culture through music and dance.

Generation USA and Envision Credit Union Partner for Credit Union Member Services Specialist Program
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., January 25, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Generation USA and the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates have partnered with Envision Credit Union on Generation USA's Credit Union Member Services Specialist Program, part of the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation's (SECUF) Community Spark Program in Florida.
The tuition-free and fully online five-week program enables students to learn the basics of credit unions, call centers, account management, and online banking.
Credit Union Member Services Specialists work at credit unions as video tellers, in-person tellers, or call center representatives. They are responsible for providing exceptional member service through basic financial transitions and resolving member issues and requests.
Upon completion of the program, students will have the opportunity to interview with Generation USA's employee partners.
"Now is a great time for people to seek opportunities to improve their financial lives, and we are very excited to partner with the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Generation USA to offer members of our community a path to a rewarding career in the credit union industry," said Hollie Maddox, SVP Chief Operations Officer, Envision Credit Union.
"We are thrilled about the growth of the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation's Community Spark Program in Florida," exclaimed Samantha Beeler, President of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions. "By partnering with Generation USA, we look forward to helping adult learners develop the skillsets needed to advance in today's ever-changing workplace. While industries across the country are currently struggling to find and retain trained workers, we are proud of the collaborative effort by Florida credit unions to continue to improve people's lives whether it is through credit union membership or by creating career opportunities for Floridians."
Generation is a nonprofit that transforms education to employment systems to prepare, place and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible. The global pandemic has led to an unprecedented surge in unemployment. Even before the pandemic, more than 75 million young adults were out of work globally and three times as many were underemployed — and 375 million workers of all ages needed to learn new skills by 2030. At the same time, certain jobs remain in high demand and 40 percent of employers say a skills shortage leaves them with entry-level vacancies. To date, more than 38,000 people have graduated from Generation programs, which prepare them for meaningful careers in 14 countries. Generation works with more than 3,900 employer partners and many implementation partners and funders. For more, visit usa.generation.org.
