According to the government, Youth Job Connection, which began in October 2015, will also continue to provide more intensive, targeted support for unemployed youth between ages 15 and 29 with multiple barriers to employment including poverty, homelessness, disability and mental health.
The Youth Job Link program is also being launched. It is the latest phase of Ontario’s Youth Jobs Strategy and will be available to youth and students at more than 320 locations across the province.
Students can access year-round services that include information on career options; advice on how to build life skills needed to successfully plan and manage a career; help with resumé writing, searching and applying for jobs, and preparing for interviews; and assistance matching skills and interests with employers that have job opportunities.
Youth Job Link and Youth Job Connection are part of a new suite of government programs designed to help youth with a broad range of employment needs and connect employers with youth looking for work.
Interested youth and employers can contact Employment Ontario.
