Employment Support Program


Y Works is an employment program that assists youth and young adults ages 15-30 to overcome barriers of employment.

To be eligible for Y Works, applicants need to meet the following eligibility requirements:
– Between ages 15-30 years old
– Not currently enrolled in school
– Not currently working
– Be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or granted refugee status
– Be able to commit 32.5 hours per week

The first 5 weeks of the program is paid employment training ($14.25 per hour for 6.5 hours per day/ Monday to Friday). The new group starts on December 14th and given the ongoing COVID–19 situation, we will start with virtual training. After the 5 weeks of training is when participants should start their employment and we connect individuals with entry level employment opportunities they are interested in.

If you meet these requirements and are interested in moving forward with your application, please send your resume to angela.bambino@swo.ymca.ca. We are currently scheduling intake interviews.
