Youth Job Connection Summer
Youth Job Connection Summer (YJCS)
YJCS supports secondary school students with multiple barriers through mandatory employability skills training and part-time employment opportunities, either throughout the summer or at a maximum of 10 hours per week during the school year. We guide and coach students to make positive educational and career choices as well as gain valuable work experience.
Note: there is a paid 20 hour minimum pre-employment training component to this program which is facilitated in Markham. Pre-employment must be completed before a job placement/work trial opportunity can be provided.
