What is Youth Job Help? This program is designed to help young adults (ages 16-24) gain necessary workforce skills and find employment. Program participants are eligible if they are out of school, experiencing homelessness, or are involved in DCF, DCH, or DYS. Through this program, the youth will participate in a paid six to twelve-month job training program and receive supportive services to further their goals. This program also provides tax credits to businesses that hire participating youth.
The Center for Youth Employment is a new office launched in May 2015 by First Lady Chirlane McCray and Mayor Bill de Blasio. Its mission is to prepare young adults for the 21st century job market. The organization offers free career counseling and drop-in employment services. These services offer resume writing, job search strategies, interview preparation, and job-matching to employers. To access these services, you must register beforehand. Located at the Alberta Trade Centre, 315 10 Avenue SE, Calgary.
Another youth job-training program is Next Step Training, which focuses on enhancing the skills and competitiveness of young people. It also helps youth reflect on their first jobs and envision what they would do next. As a result, they become more prepared to enter the workforce and find rewarding jobs. The Center for Employment Training has helped many young people build successful careers. The youth-oriented program works to ensure that each participant has a positive outlook and is motivated to succeed.
