Experience Jobs in Demand for Young Adults, a FREE 8-week interactive skills training program designed to empower unemployed job seekers aged 18-29 with the tools to secure employment. It’s a hands-on training program where you’ll participate in group workshops and receive individual support to help you become job-ready. You’ll learn about different industries that are in high demand, earn important certifications, connect with potential employers, and receive guidance from our experienced team.

    Upon completion of this program, participants will develop:

    • Industry specific soft and essential skills training for the workplace
    • Personalized plan to support career success
    • Employability Skills training: Resume, Cover letter development, Networking and Marketing skills

    • Understanding of the labour market and personal career exploration

    We help you connect with local employers and support you the entire way to employment.
