About the program
The program offers youth personalized skill training following the Skill for Success model to help prepare them to enter the workforce. This Employability Skills Training will run for five weeks and will explore the following themes of skills development:
- Team Development
- Job Search
- Financial Literacy
- Personal Skills
- Professional Skills
The training will follow a hybrid model, to offer flexibility and accessibility to our participants.
In addition, the program seeks to connect program participants with employers for paid work placements to help Nova Scotian youth overcome their barriers to employment. This provides youth with a 15-week work term to gain the experience necessary to get employed and stay employed.
Participants can also choose to engage in virtual training throughout and after the program via our Options Online learning platform to further upskill their toolbox.
