Youth Job Connection

Youth Job Connection (YJC)

YJC includes paid pre-employment workshops, job matching and placement support.

Participants first complete 3 weeks of paid pre-employment workshops which include topics such as resume writing, interview skills, customer service and more. After completing the workshops, participants will be supported by a 360°kids Job Developer with finding a paid employment opportunity. Specialized training required by placement employers such as First Aid/CPR, Smart Serve, WHMIS, Working at Heights, Security, etc. can be provided through program funding.

Pre-employment workshops run for 3 consecutive weeks and are delivered Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They are now being offered in a hybrid model where participants are required to attend BOTH in person and online.

  • Tuesdays/Thursdays in-person at 4855 14th Ave, Markham (YMCA)
  • Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays online via Zoom

Once pre-employment hours are completed, they are connected with a Job Developer who will assist them in obtaining a work placement.
