Base 4 Success
Base 4 Success (B4S)
B4S is a 12 week paid employment program for youth who face barriers to employment. Through 168 hours of facilitated classroom pre-employment workshops and 192 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, financial literacy, and personal mental health 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
