About: S2S is a youth employment program for individuals age 15-30 who are experiencing barriers to employment including challenges re-entering the workforce, maintaining permanent employment, or finding employment.

This program is delivered in two phases: the first is six weeks of group-based employment skills workshops where participants develop their skills in networking, resume building, interviewing, and managing workplace conflict. During this portion of the program, clients are paid for their active participation in the workshops.

The second phase of the program is a nine-week supported work placement where participants are supported to find employment in their chosen fields with the support of program facilitators with clients receiving payment from their placement employer.

S2S is currently delivered in a hybrid format, with three days of on-site programming and two days of virtual programming per week.

In order to qualify for S2S, individuals must:

  • Be between the ages of 15-30
  • Available Monday-Friday from 10 am -4 pm
  • Not currently employed or in post-secondary education
