Join our Youth Quest Program

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 16 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 16-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 in Barrie, Orillia, South Georgian Bay (Collingwood/Wasaga Beach), South Simcoe (Bradford/Innisfil/Alliston) and the Region of Muskoka.

Our next available intake is April 1, 2020, pending Federal Government funding approval. Please contact the email below beginning April 1, 2020 to apply to the program.
