Youth Employment Program Cornwall 2023

A new program is available to help you prepare for your next step, offering coaching, certifications and connections with local employers. And as an added bonus, you could be eligible for a cash bonus if you complete the program.

“If college or university is not in your immediate plans, then you should give us a call,” says Justine Viray-Levac, Assistant Coordinator with the Eastern Ontario Training Board. “Alternatively, if you have graduated from College or University and are now back home and looking for a job in your field, get in touch with us! We are looking to connect students with employment opportunities. There are a lot of great reasons to stay in the area and start building a career.”

The Youth Employment Program is open to local residents who are between the ages of 17 and 30. This includes high school grads who are not pursuing post-secondary education and need a job; and post-secondary grads who went away for school, but are now back in Cornwall/SDGPR, and trying to find a job in their field of study.
