Tridel created the BOLT program in 2009 and when BOLT became a charitable organization in 2013, remained as its Founding Sponsor.
BOLT’s positive impact to date would not have been possible without Tridel’s leadership and commitment to creating opportunities for youth in construction and skilled trades. As the founding sponsor of BOLT, Tridel has helped more than 500 youth find their passion. By raising the bar to grow the construction industry with top talent, Tridel has supported young individuals through career exploration opportunities, education and training, employment placements, mentorship and more, so that they can realize their full potential.
Tridel’s purpose and promise includes a deep commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The company believes that its ability to give back and create social and environmental change is a privilege. Tridel understands that the ‘triple bottom line’ concept of people-planet-profit is not a choice, but rather a business imperative. Tridel’s belief in community goes beyond physical buildings, focusing its CSR lens on sustainable business practices, community economic development and engagement, corporate giving, employee development, customer experience, innovation and reducing their environmental impact.
To Tridel, doing good is simply good business.
Employees from Tridel have been some of BOLT’s biggest supporters since Day One. Not only have they raised funds to help support BOLT and its scholarship programs, Tridel employees have also donated their time by leading in-community events and initiatives such as our Days of Discovery and Speak Outs, volunteering at Casino Night and the Golf Tournament, speaking about their careers and sharing their experiences, hosting our Days of Discovery and Job Shadowing programs and providing mentorship opportunities to youth starting their careers through co-op programs or internships. Tridel also hired a dedicated Employment Specialist who works as a liaison between the company, vulnerable communities and BOLT to ensure young individuals are aware of industry opportunities available and to connect them to those opportunities.
We’d like to especially recognize the vision of Leo and Sandra DelZotto who made the first steps toward making the BOLT Foundation a reality. They have been active supporters of our mission since 2009.
We’d also like to acknowledge the work of Greg Nevison, former EVP Construction who has now joined our Board of Directors, as well as Peter Meneguzzi, Tridel’s current SVP Construction and also a Board member. Greg and Peter dedicate their time and expertise in support of our programming to connect youth to real-life, on-the-job experiences, creating countless opportunities for BOLT youth.
Beyond its enthusiastic support of BOLT’s programming, Tridel also helps cover our administrative costs to ensure funds raised can go directly toward benefiting youth through our initiatives.
The BOLT Foundation is honoured to continue our work with Tridel and looks forward to a long future of creating opportunities by helping develop the young talent of tomorrow.
