Our Story:

With a history rooted in manufacturing, Windsor is a city constantly trying to live up to past expectations. While we’ve forged a great relationship with our friends across the river and become a very multicultural and diverse city, we’re facing a crisis. Many young adults are choosing to leave the area to find meaningful work and a new place to call home because they feel disconnected, underappreciated and underwhelmed. As a result, the economy suffers and local ties are frayed.

We are the knot that bonds young people together, with their city, and the local resources needed to be successful. Young talent is the future and present of Windsor Essex. This can no longer be ignored. The Millennial Generation is poised to change the world, and together, we can change the tide. It’s time to start moulding this city into the young, vibrant, destination it’s destined to be. So why not Windsor-Essex?

Our Mission:

To build a movement of inspired young people connected with local opportunities, decision-makers, and industry so that they can grow and thrive in Windsor-Essex.

Our Vision:

A Windsor-Essex that young people want to be a part of: where we hold meaningful employment, influence big decisions, and make a difference in the community.
