Youth Job Connection

This Employment Ontario program is funded by the Government of Ontario.


Help youth in your community gain valuable work experience.

Youth Job Connection provides paid pre-employment training, job opportunities and mentorship to youth aged 15-29. As an employer you have the opportunity to provide valuable work experience to youth in your community while receiving a financial incentive to help cover the costs of wages and training.

Program Benefits for Employers:

  • connect with candidates who are ready to work and motivated to succeed
  • receive pre-screened youth referrals who have completed pre-employment training
  • financial incentives to offset on-boarding and training costs
  • unique opportunities to support and mentor youth in the community

A YMCA Employment Services Job Developer will work with you to understand your needs and connect you with qualified candidates in your community.
