Toronto Youth Job Corps.

The Toronto Youth Job Corps. is a paid employment program designed to connect youth to the workforce.

The program is for youth who are between the ages of 16-29 and out of work or out of school. 

The program is a full time, 6 to 24 week paid employment preparation program for youth especially those who are facing a difficult life situation or having a hard time getting a job.  The program works in two phases. 

Phase One:  The first five weeks is considered the pre-employment phase and youth are paid to participate.  During this time you will have access to employment readiness and pre-employment supports, plus participate in a variety of workshops that build up your employment skills; including a paint site component. 

Workshops include employment readiness skills, resume and cover letter help, and career planning among other topics. 

You will also receive supportive one-on-one employment counselling and a referral to phase two of the program.

Phase Two:  You will work in a paid job placement with a local employer for 6 to 24 weeks.  Once you have successfully completed phase two, we will continue to help you find employment as well as skill development and/or educational opportunities.  Job placements range from sales and administration to construction and the trades.
