The Employment Program assists individuals ages 15-30 with entering the workforce by teaching skills such as:
- Resume building
- Cover letter writing
- Interview strategies
We also provide you with whatever training you require… for FREE!
The YESS (Youth Employment & Skills Strategy) Program, funded through the Government of Canada, helps connect our participants with local business employers to provide meaningful work experience.
Within the YESS Program, there are 2 options available:
- Option 1: 1 participant working up to 36.5 hours within a one-week duration @ $15/hr. Employer is then reimbursed this pay by The Open Doors once proof of payment is confirmed (ex: Paystub).
- Option 2: 1 participant working 30 hours a week for a 14-week period @ $15/hr. Employer is then reimbursed this pay by The Open Doors once proof of payment is confirmed (ex: Paystub).
We also take care of the training, so you do not have to worry about covering this cost on your end!
