Youth Skills Connection

This program is for all youth ages 18-30 who are unemployed, not in school full-time and looking for work. Participants of this program attend 6 or 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 to 12-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 is offered at Bow Valley College West Campus in Calgary, and also runs in Banff/Canmore & Cochrane. However, presently, we are offering on-line delivery. All participants must have access to a computer or tablet.

Next intake dates: December 6, 2021 (Calgary) | January 17, 2022 (Banff/Canmore/Cochrane) | March 7, 2022 (Calgary) | May 9, 2022 (Calgary)

More dates for Banff/Canmore & Cochrane coming soon!

This program is funded by the Government of Canada.
