Through funding from the Youth Employment Skills Strategy (YESS), we have been able to recently launch a new program called "Getting Ahead in the Workplace" that is geared at supporting youth. Youth continues to be defined as individuals aged 15-29 years of age.
This is on top of the Youth Job Connection programs that we have running. Our Cambridge office will be specifically starting another group, which is still accepting referrals, as of May 10th.
Our next Youth Job Connection Summer program for high school students will be starting at the end of June / beginning of July after high school courses finish for the year.
