Leslie Kwok, Youth Employment Hub Coordinator
Our Youth Employment programs are based on the belief that the better prepared for employment you are, the more successful you will be!
Our Employment Resource Office is open year round. We offer resources and workshops for all Youth in the community during fall and winter on a variety of topics that will give youth employment training plus assistance in the areas of resume writing, job searching, interview skills, and obtaining identification.
The two main programs we facilitate are the Youth Crew Program and First Jobs 4 Youth (FJ4Y).
Our Youth Crew program offers occasional odd jobs/training opportunities for local Youth, ages 11-16. Youth develop skills in yard care, snow and ice removal, cooking, baking and catering, building projects and community relationships.
A natural stage of progression, many Youth Crew participants become First Jobs 4 Youth participants as they come of age. Both programs build community connections, self-confidence, self-esteem, and human dignity, as well as provide a safe working environment where Youth are valued community members.
