Join our Youth Quest Program

“I gained more insight on what types of jobs align with my values. I also gained a lot of knowledge on community resources I never would have known if it weren’t for the workshops in the program.”

– 2020 Youth Quest Participant

This program is for youth aged 15-30 who are either unemployed or under-employed and looking for full-time employment. Youth Quest provides 6 weeks of pre-employment training with 14 weeks of paid work experience. During the six-week pre-employment training youth build employability, job maintenance and life skills to help remove the barriers that have been preventing them from accessing the labour market. Participants also secure a 14-week supported work experience to help them make the permanent transition into full-time employment. This program is funded by Service Canada and is delivered throughout Simcoe County.
