Youth On Their Way To Work (YOWW)

Work Prep has been delivering youth programming since 2011 and we are excited to continue doing so through our new YOWW program.  Through YOWW, we work to assist youth on their employment journey by creating a customized experience based on their needs.

Youth may have access to some or all of the following supports:

  • 1 to 1 Case Management help
  • 6 week group training course
  • Mental health supports
  • Computer training/certification
  • Indigenous learning/supports
  • Paid training
  • Coverage for proper work clothes or tolls
  • Certificate training, and more!

Youth who will benefit would include:

  • Ages 15-30
  • Unemployed and not in school
  • Looking for work but need assistance in obtaining a job
  •  Confident they can work, but unsure of the skills needed
  •  Are unsure what career path they want to pursue

This project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment and Skills Strategy Program
