Youth Job Connection Information Session
Youth Job Connection is one of a suite of new employment programs being developed as part of Employment and Training Services Integration (ETSI), a key government initiative that is modernizing and transforming Ontario's employment and training programs and services to improve access and provide job seekers and employers with proven, coordinated and targeted services that meet their needs.
The program will serve youth aged 15 to 29 who experience multiple and/or complex barriers to employment by providing more intensive supports beyond traditional job search and placement opportunities. These include:
- Paid pre-employment training to promote job-readiness;
- Job matching and paid job placements, with placement supports for participants and hiring incentives for employers;
- Mentorship services; and
- Education and work transitions supports.
