The Youth Job Connection program is designed to help people ages 15-29 who are not employed or in school to attain employment. If you are suitable and eligible for the program you attend 60 hours (usually done in 3-4 weeks, some individuals may attend up to 90 hours) of PAID in house workshops where you develop employability skills.
YJC offers paid hands-on workshops to:
- Discover the local job market
- Impress in an interview
- Get up to date training in health and safety
- Become a customer service expert
There is also job matching and paid job placements, with supports for participants, this means we may help pay for things like a bus pass, smart serve, first Aid & CPR training etc. We also have hiring incentives for employers that help them cover the cost of wages and training for new hires (that’s you!).

If you are interested in attending YJC, call 705-444-1580 or email email@example.com to make an appointment for an assessment. All appointments are being held virtually.
Youth Job Connection is an Employment Ontario Program.
