THIS IS NOT A JOB! IT IS A PROGRAM TO HELP YOU FIND EMPLOYMENT!!!

YMCA Employment Services is offering the YJC program, serving youth aged 15-29 who experience multiple or complex barriers to employment by providing more intensive support beyond traditional job search and placement opportunities. Here’s what participants get when they join:

  • PAID TO ATTEND 60 HOURS OF PRE-EMPLOYMENT WORKSHOPS  AT $11.40/HR
     
  •  HANDS-ON WORK EXPERIENCE AT A PAID JOB PLACEMENT
     
  • UP TO $1000 IN SUPPORTS TO BUY CLOTHES, SHOES/ WORK RELATED ITEMS FOR A JOB PLACEMENT
     
  • ONE-ON-ONE SUPPORT WITH A JOB COUNSELLOR
     
  • BUILD NETWORKS
  • A roadmap to success. We’ll meet with participants to assess their needs and goals, then map out a custom-made plan to their success.
     
  • Preparation. We’ll provide paid interactive workshops to ensure that participants are prepared to take on the challenges that come with a career.
     
  • Practical experience. The best way to learn the skills you need is to do them while on the job. We’ll provide participants with a job placement that can last up to 6 months, as well as one-on-one coaching and networking opportunities with other program participants.
     
  • Ongoing support. When the placement ends, the support continues—participants will have continued access to career coaching; participants will have an opportunity to provide mentorship to new participants based on their experiences in the programs
