This Employment Ontario program is funded by the Government of Ontario
Paid career development training and job placement for youth (15-29 years old) who are having trouble finding work. Providing access to job search resources and information for students and youth to find jobs throughout the year and for the summer.
Employment Ontario's Youth Job Connection (YJC) program offers paid pre-employment training and job placement to youth across Ontario. Our role at Employment Services Elgin is to help local youth find and retain suitable jobs through a combination of pre-employment training, mentorship, and job placement.
If you are between the ages of 15-18, are experiencing multiple or complex barriers to employment and are looking for summer or part-time employment while in school, you can benefit from this intensive youth employment program. This progrm allows you to earn money while attending pre-employment training and offers up to 8 weeks (throughout the summer) and up to 10 hours per week through the school year of on-the-job training to assist you in transitioning from school to employment.
