Youth Job Link
Launching in April 2016, Youth Job Link is designed to help youth (ages 15-29), including students, to plan their careers and transition into the labour market. The program includes youth-focused career exploration and career management services, as well as job search, readiness and matching assistance.
Information is provided through our dynamic workshops, which aim not only to promote success in the job-search process but will also help prepare young job-seekers to embrace the work environment with a positive attitude and a high level of enthusiasm. Services will be offered individually and in group settings, with available resources covering topics such as career goal assessment, life and work decision-making skills, and labour market information.
Clients will also be given the chance to connect with youth-friendly employers across the city looking to hire.
Our Resource and Information Centre offers free access to computers, email, and other office services. The centre contains resources aimed at addressing the specific needs of job-seeking youth, including but not limited to information about:
- Employment opportunities for youth (including summer jobs for students)
- Local labour market trends and opportunities
- Occupational requirements
- Other available community service supports
Additionally, youth are invited to our weekly “Job Shop,” which is a supported youth drop-in session to get help with job search, resume-writing, and cover letter development held between 5pm-6:30 each Thursday evening!
There are also workshops each week to build your job searching skills. Check out the schedule here: Youth Job Link January 2019 Schedule
Youth who are out of school and out of work requiring more intensive supports may be referred to our regular Employment Services.
