Youth Are Working


Youth are Working is a Skills Link project funded by Service Canada which provides exposure to life and employment related skills, practical work experience, and continuous learning opportunities. Using both group work and an individualized approach to personal and career development, program staff assist youth in developing their employment portfolio with the goal of preparing them for the realities of the workplace and the expectations of today's employers.

Waypoints Employment and Outreach Services provides individualized and group support services to youth, ages 12-30, who face barriers to education and employment. Waypoints staff support youth who are experiencing difficulties in their lives in areas such as education, reliable housing, and healthy lifestyle choices. Youth may also be at risk of substance abuse, contact with the justice system, or dropping out of school. Outreach support seeks to connect with youth and explore new opportunities and creative ways to build healthier and more fulfilling lives.
