Looking for a job?
We can help!

If you're between the ages of 15 and 18 then check to see if our Jobs for Youth program is available in your community.

We know that not everyone has the same opportunities to get a job or the help they need. The Jobs for Youth program helps teens get valuable work experience, including those who live in neighbourhoods that might not have as many services as other places.

The program is available in 19 communities around Ontario for teens who need help getting a summer job. You will receive job training, an employment placement from July to August, and support after your job finishes. You will be paid during your training and job placement.

The after-school program is available in four communities and runs from October to June.

This is a great opportunity to:

  • Earn some extra cash
  • Build your resume
  • Explore your interests for college, university or apprenticeship and future career
  • Learn more about yourself and gain new skills
  • Meet new friends and contacts

To get more info and an application form call your local Jobs for Youth office!
