Youth Job Link (YJL)
Never worked before? We can help.
Youth Job Link is designed to help youth aged 15 to 29, who have never worked before and who do not face significant barriers to employment to plan their careers and transition to the labour market.
Youth Job Link provides three categories of non-intensive employment services, each of which is available year-round. They are:
- Career exploration services to increase knowledge of career options and support career decision-making;
- Career management services to improve readiness for the labour market; and,
- Job search, readiness and matching assistance to connect youth with employers offering employment opportunities, including summer jobs.
In some cases, YJL will also offer individual supports and employer training supports to offset the costs of on-the-job-training, new employee orientation and other hiring-related costs.
If you are a youth who is interested in finding employment or you are an employer who would like to get involved, please contact Evan Dawe at 705-759-0909 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
