The CAVE Youth Employment Program is for youth who are facing challenges and barriers to employment. We provide a place for youth to identify job goals, explore careers, build workplace skills and confidence as well as connect participants with local employers. I have attached a poster for our June 4th class for your reference.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

Phase 1. 4 weeks of in-class training focused on enhancing essential workplace skills and job search skills to achieve employment goals. Includes resume preparation, cover letter writing, interviewing skills, and industry-specific training courses.

Phase 2. Up to 12 weeks of job search support including customized assistance from experienced program staff who will help you connect with and refer youth to employers.

Phase 3. Paid work placement, with support through the first 3 months. We offer employers who hire CAVE participants an incentive, a wage subsidy for the first 12 weeks of employment.
