Employers-Youth Job Connection

 Are you looking for new employees to help grow your business?

Ontario’s new Youth Job Connection program can help your business with the financial costs of hiring and training employees.

Youth Job Connection is designed to help young people between the ages of 15-29 gain work experience through placement with local employers. Employers can receive financial incentives (up to $7,500) to hire and offset training costs. Participants come to you job ready after completing 60 hours in job preparation workshops. Once placed with your organization, our counsellors provide ongoing support to you and the employee. The goal of the program is to achieve long-term employment, meaningful careers, and success in their future working lives.

We are looking for youth friendly employers in the community to give youth an employment opportunity.  For more information please contact Paula Newman 905.697.4472 or paula.newman@durhamcollege.ca

With the right opportunity and support from our staff, young people can contribute to the success of your business.
