YOUTH JOB CONNECTION
This program offers intensive, specialized support to youth between 15 and 29 years of age who are not working, not in school and not in training. While the program is open to all eligible youth, it is intended to assist those who are experiencing significant employment challenges. Youth must be a resident of Ontario and eligible to work in Canada.
This program provides:
- Minimum of 60 hours of paid training to prepare youth for the workplace
- Placements (up to 26 weeks) with support and funding for employers
- Mentorship, coaching, and help with school and work transitions after the program ends
This program also provides part-time after-school job opportunities to high school students between 15 and 18 years of age who are facing the same employment challenges and who require assistance transitioning between school and work.
Summer job opportunities will be available for high school students starting in the spring of 2016.
