Ontario Youth Opportunities Strategy
Jobs for Youth Summer Experience 2014
The Ontario Government Youth Opportunities Strategy Jobs for Youth Program works with young people in the priority neighbourhoods of Malvern, Jamestown, Jane/Finch & Westminster/Branson, Kingston/Galloway, Scarborough Village, Eglinton East/Kennedy Park, Dorset Park, Lawrence Heights, Weston/Mt. Dennis, Steeles/L’Amoureaux, Flemingdon Park/Victoria Village and Crescent Town. The program will offer immediate support to improve the economic opportunities for youth in the short term.
The program creates opportunities for youth from underserved communities by giving them tools to help them succeed, including job readiness training and support, paid employment placements for July and August and post-employment support. Post-employment support includes connecting the youth to post secondary opportunities, assisting them in finding part-time employment, and providing information on the various services offered by agencies within the communities.
Administered by Tropicana Community Services, the program caters to approximately 1020 youth aged 15–18 each year. Youth are employed through the program in a variety of jobs thus gaining valuable work experience. They receive minimum wage and jobs are fully subsidized for the employers for six (6) weeks at 35 hours per week.
Offices will be open on June 3, 2014 and remain open until August 29, 2014
Please note that applications will be accepted from June 3- 10, 2014.
