If you’re looking for work, Halton Region might be able to help.

The region’s Youth Job Connection (YJC) program is for individuals aged 15-29 who are currently unemployed, not attending or returning to full-time school or training, and looking for a job or career.

The program aims to serve people experiencing multiple and/or complex barriers to employment by providing more intensive supports beyond traditional job search and placement opportunities.

Through the Youth Job Connection program, you get:

  • At least 60 hours paid training to prepare you for the workplace
  • A job for up to six months
  • Mentorship, job-coaching and help with the transition from school to work, or to ongoing employment once the program ends.

The program is delivered online, so it is required to have access to a personal computer, reliable Wi-Fi/internet connection and privacy to attend online sessions with a webcam or camera.

Some of the other benefits of the program include career exploration, job-search, resume and interview support. Participants get techniques on time management, social media, first aid awareness and employment standards.
