The YouthjobsCanada.ca website aims to provide an important service for the Youth market in Canada. By helping provide resources for Youth beyond just an employment website, YouthjobsCanada.ca is the only Canadian source to help Youth of all diversity, including vulnerable Youth, by offering an integrated and graduated set of services by allowing Youth in Canada to select where they want to begin their working journey.
From their experience in the Employment Recruitment Industry in Canada, their research has shown there is not an all inclusive 1 stop National website and resource for offering Youth and Employers of Youth, a platform for helping Youth transition into the the Canadian Work Force and to help Employers secure Youth skills to fill important roles and to offer a path forward from being students in school to being working young adults.
By allowing Employers and Youth to meet by 3 different methods or offerings, Youth are given the opportunity to start with: Volunteer Work – Work Experience Programs – and Work & Career Offerings, Youth can turn their ideas of how to contribute their interests and skills into a role which serves community value by volunteering to start creating a connection, value and output between contributing, seeing outputs and experiencing the real world of people helping people.
Their Job Seekers page offers and promotes a wide range of job vacancies that are listed by Employers who would like to encourage a greater number of applications from Youth Job Seekers. They are proud of Canada’s up and coming educated and skilled Youth generation and believe that there is a method to help the Youth get the experience for their first job by applying the principles of value and unpaid work to start, in the forms of Volunteer and or Work Experience Programs before their first job in some cases. There are many Youth throughout the country with the education, skills, experience, potential and passion for any opportunity!
As diverse as Canada is, so are today’s Youth in Canada. In saying that, there are unique challenges for all Youth in Canada, many Youth find mainstream education and career guidance beneficial and are able to make the transition into the workforce effectively with traditional approaches. Other factors in Youth’s lives create possible barriers and additional unique challenges for these Youth. YouthjobsCanada.ca supports and encourages all
Canadian Employers and Non-Profit Organizations to help us all find important roles for all Youth in Canada! Canadian Employers and Non-Profit Organizations have the opportunity to post their; Jobs, Volunteer Opportunities or Work Experience Program roles on one platform and allow for connections and future work relationships to be built for Youth by offering them an opportunity to prove themselves in a preliminary or starting role as a Volunteer or Work Experience Student. This serves the purpose of community commitment and good corporate citizenship by the Employer and helps the Youth get that starting opportunity to help them build their resume.
