Tridel’s BOLT Program

Raly Chakarova of Tridel talks about their BOLT Program which recruits youth for careers in construction in priority GTA neighbourhoods.

Raly is the Executive Director of the BOLT Charitable Foundation. BOLT was started by Tridel with a mandate to assist under-resourced youth connect to careers in construction through raising awareness, career exploration, and financial support for skilled training and post-secondary education. Prior to this role, Raly was the Director of Policy at the Toronto Region Board of Trade, leading its work on talent and trade. One of the policy reports she authored at the Board was the high profiled “Help Wanted: Modernizing Employment and Skills Training Services in Ontario" [PDF] that looked at improving workforce development practices in the province. A big reason for joining the BOLT Foundation was to put the principles of that report into practice. As a former senior advisor to provincial cabinet ministers, including Ontario’s Minister of Economic Development and Growth, Raly has an in-depth and practical understanding of government policy. Raly is a Board Member of ACCES Employment, a member of RESCON's Anti-Racism Roundtable, and member of the Women in Construction Committee at George Brown College.
