Podcast: Scaling up your employment program

October 21, 2021

Matthew Taylor of Communities United with a story about how they scaled up their program Market Ready.

​This episode from ABSI (Alberta Social Innovation), features Matthew Taylor, manager of Communities United (at United Way), who shares two stories. The first about the inception of Communities United and the second about how running a small pop-up market in the dead of winter with a sky dancer bloomed into their program Market Ready. With both stories taking the arch of fizzle (or rather starting as a small sizzle) to a full blown sizzle. 


​Communities United is a collaborative initiative in five Edmonton Neighbourhoods that is building connections and activities to strengthen the lives of individuals, families, and communities.  Communities United is a MyMatchWork partner organization.
