Success at Work Campaign

 Toronto’s workforce is changing. Retiring baby boomers, a shortage in practical skillsets and rapidly evolving technology are combining to threaten future prosperity if we fall behind.

Employers need workplace-ready graduates in growing numbers, and are turning to colleges1. Most choose George Brown College because our graduates are successful at work2.

Students are choosing us as well3 - bright young people with financial challenges, newcomers trying to make their mark in a new community, and university graduates seeking to specialize. In fact, over 50% of students who apply to George Brown are full-time employees, graduates from a postsecondary institution or university students who want a specialized, career-focused education.

Right now, George Brown is at capacity – students are coming to us in numbers we simply can't accommodate, and employers are struggling to find the graduates they need. And the demand is accelerating4. That’s why we have embarked on a $250 million expansion vision which includes a new state-of-the-art waterfront health sciences campus, capital expansion projects at our other campus locations, and increasing scholarships and bursaries.

Please consider donating to our Success at Work campaign. Supporting a George Brown student is an investment that creates a positive ripple effect in our community. A student becomes a workplace-ready graduate. An employer fills a critical need. A family moves up the socio-economic ladder. An individual develops confidence, skills and knowledge to last a lifetime. That’s the impact your support can make. That’s Success at Work.
