A six session, full-time employment preparation program for youth aged 15 – 29, focuses on skilled trades in Ontario. Designed to enhance the essential skills and work habits of older youth who, despite wanting to find rewarding, full-time employment, find themselves poorly integrated into the labour market with little to no current involvement in education, employment or training (i.e. N.E.E.T. youth). With a focus in the skilled trades in Ontario, participants explore the many benefits to pursuing this demanding and rewarding career path.
