Base 4 Success
Base 4 Success (B4S)
B4S is a 12 week paid employment program for youth who face barriers to employment. Through 120 hours of facilitated classroom pre-employment workshops and 240 hours of paid work placement opportunities, B4S has the potential to make a lasting impact towards sustainable employment for youth.
Participants are provided with certification opportunities for Smart Serve, WHMIS, Food Handlers and First Aid/CPR, participate in a 1 day team building excursion and training in employment and life skill topics such as budgeting, stress management, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, healthy relationships, self-care and time management. While youth are in their employment placements, we provide ongoing support and coaching to assist them in overcoming challenges in retaining long- term meaningful employment.
Participants in B4S must meet the following eligibility criteria:
- Be between the ages of 15-30
- Are currently unemployed and not attending full time school
- Have not received any form of Employment Insurance (EI) within the past 5 years
- A valid Social Insurance Number (SIN) and legally eligible to work in Canada
