360°kids offers young people a range of employment supports to help them acquire the training and skills needed to enter and stay in the labour market. Over the past year, the program has experienced significant growth to six different program streams and 15 staff members.

360°kids Employment Programs are designed to empower and encourage participants to overcome employment barriers that could potentially hinder their motivation and ability to be successful at work. Our programs are unique in that we cultivate an empathic, holistic approach in preparation for employment as youth move to a state of safety and stability. We support youth in preparation for employment and in developing skills necessary to maintain new job opportunities. Employment barriers include, but not limited to, discrimination, experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness, LGBTTQ, police record, Indigenous, recent immigrant and living with mental health challenges.
