Youth Job Link
Youth Job Link is designed to help youth, including students, aged 15 to 29, who do not face significant barriers to employment, but who could benefit from some extra help 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.
Skills for Change is currently engaging YJL youth participants to increase their work related skills through various workshop sessions including Career Exploration, Career Management, Job Search and Job Readiness. We are also working with our employer partners to then match participants to suitable job opportunities based on skills and expressed interests.
