Youth Programs

We help youth gain valuable work experience.

If you are a young person or student looking for work, we can help you achieve your goal through various specialized youth programs delivered on behalf of Employment Ontario.

This Employment Ontario ​service is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.

We connect people looking for work with employers looking for workers.

The programs we provide can help you gain experience, build skills, and find a job. We offer employment services on behalf of the provincial and federal government and assist job seekers and employers in navigating the various programs and services available.

All of our Government Services are free of charge.
