Launch of the youth Job Connection program
Last Thursday, November 12th, the Employment Services Centre (CSEPR) had the privilege of greeting the honorable MPP Grant Crack, to a press conference presenting the investments made by the Government of Ontario in regards to the new Youth Job Connection Program as well as the positive impacts it will have for our region.
Also present alongside the MPP, the Centres' Youth Service Agents, Mr. Jean Dubois and Mrs. Maude Larose, who explained the approach the Centre is taking towards the dispensing of this new program. Launched in early October 2015, the Centre already has a group of young people being trained in workshops who will soon be ready for on-the-job training.
This program is aimed at young people aged from 15 to 29 and is designed to help them develop skills that will improve their employment capaciites, but also give them access to education or training while gaining work experience. The goal of this program is for young person to achieve long-term employment, meaningful careers, and success in their future working lives.
CSEPR invites all young people aged from 15 to 29 years old, as well as employers interested in participating to on-the-job training, to contact us for further details.
