Youth Job Connection: Summer

Similar to Youth Job Connection, but this program focuses on youth who are students.

This summer component provides summer job opportunities and part-time job placements during the school year to gain work experience and help them to make positive educational and career choices. The focus is on youth facing challenging life circumstances and at risk of experiencing poor transitions between education and work.

Youth receive a minimum of 20 hours of paid pre-employment training, subsidized job placement and mentorship.
