Young workers can give themselves an edge in the labour market by developing interpersonal skills.

The Canadian labour market is trending as we’ve never seen before. Despite reportedly having more jobs than employees, the youth unemployment rate is almost double the national average. According to NBC, LinkedIn reports, “in a post-pandemic workplace, the ability to build relationships and collaborate with teams globally is an important skill.”

Job Skills’ You Fit program provides personalized employment solutions for young people who are not currently in education, employment, training, or enrolled in educational activities. The program identifies and provides the support needed for success by increasing youth’s employability skills through a concentrated five-day intensive “boot camp” program.

During the program, the participants are paid a living allowance equivalent to 30hrs x minimum wage. Post-program, participants not employed are paid to attend a six-week work placement at 35hrs/wk x minimum wage. 

Job Skills’ Youfit program will be delivered online to youth job seekers residing in GTA, including; York and Peel Regions.
