At the start of September, a new group of participants started a three week program called Youth Job Connection. The youth receive 60 hours of paid classroom training to learn job search and employment readiness skills. In addition, workshop facilitators teach important life skills and introduce the participants to community services that can provide support throughout their careers. Participants go on to complete a job placement with a local employer which provides valuable work experience and access to mentorship, job coaching and financial support.
If you are interested in participating in our next Youth Job Connection program, please contact us at 613-542-7373 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
