The Canadian Council on Rehabilitation and Work (CCRW) is thrilled to share their new program – Youth The Future (YTF) – a pre-employment training program.
Youth the Future will provide PAID pre-employment training and work experience for youth with a disability
In launching this initiative, CCRW is able to provide youth with barriers to employment, such as a disability, with job-readiness training in preparation for finding ongoing, entry-level work.
To be eligible for the program, you must be between 15 – 30 years old, identify as having a disability, and have a Social Insurance Number. You must have basic reading and writing skills and a positive attitude. You may not apply if you are currently receiving Employment Insurance.
When you register for the program, you will receive:
- 6 WEEKS of PAID, in-class job-readiness training
- Learn how to effectively job search
- Create resumes and cover letters
- Interview techniques
- All the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in today’s workplace!
Youth will be walked through the process with YTF staff to support you every step of the way to help you find, interview for and obtain your job.
Once you’ve completed the training and got the job, you’ll get a minimum of 14 weeks of PAID employment, working at least 25hrs per week. You’ll be able to rely on the YTF as a support system to empower you through the
transition. Youth will have the opportunity to provide and receive continuous feedback and coaching, as well as weekly PAID classroom training to help you throughout the employment phase.
To aid training and employment, YTF will also include:
- Sign Language Interpreters
- Sighted guides available
- Wheelchair accessible venues
Start Date: March 13, 2017 – Contact us ASAP!
