Applications Open for Linkages Program to Help Youth Gain Employment

Non-profit community-based organizations are invited to submit proposals for the 2018-19 Linkages program to help young people between the ages of 18-30 gain and maintain meaningful employment.

Linkages is a client-centred employment initiative that helps community-based agencies offer 26-week work placements for youth. The program is designed for young people who have completed a minimum of Level II high school, but have not completed post-secondary education and have not made a successful transition to the labour force.

Through Linkages, these young people will gain experience and counselling to help them return to school to complete academic upgrading, enter skills training, continue employment or become self-employed.
