flyer images for Youth Work NOW! program

Are you a youth between the ages of 15-24 or, do you have a youth in your life that will be looking for summer job or other employment in the near future?

Youth Work NOW! - an online webinar taking place Thursday, April 29th at 11:00 am will help youth in our region search for a summer job or their first job. The session will feature short presentations by about a dozen employment related services from Grand Erie.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has added unique challenges for youth in finding employment. To assist our region’s youth the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie has organized Youth Work NOW! to inform local youth ages 15-24 about current resources, programs and services being offered to help them find a summer job; for graduating students or for youth not in school - their first full time job and to also help those interested in learning how they can start their own business.

Education partners and organization such as St. Leonard’s Community Services, Brantford-Brant Business Resource Centre, CareerLink and about half a dozen other employment service providers will talk about ways they help youth gain employment. Resources will also be compiled and made available publicly on our website.

Youth and their families are invited to join the webinar which will include a Q&A and access to valuable programs and supports that can assist them in finding temporary or full-time work.
