Youth Skills Connection
This program is for all youth ages 15-30 who are unemployed, not in school full-time and looking for work. Participants of this program attend an 8-week paid workshop which consists of career planning, job search and employability skills topics. (Please note that due to the pandemic, the next workshop is offered through remote learning.) After the workshop, participants are placed in an 8-week paid work experience in an entry-level position in the direction of their career aspirations. The work experiences are intended to lead to full-time employment.
This program normally runs at the Bow Valley College Campus in Calgary. However, presently, we are offering on-line delivery. All participants must have access to a computer or tablet.
Next 2021 intake dates: June 21, September 16 and December 6
This program is funded by the Government of Canada.
