The Youth Employment Mentorship Program is aimed to help youth(15-30) gain skills and confidence to enter the working world. Through workshops and job coaching we meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to go. This next session will begin virtually is a 14 week commitment.  The first 7 weeks participants will receive paid life/job skills training. The last 7 weeks of the 14 week commitment, participants will continue receiving support in their newly acquired position or continued job search. Employers who hire a YEMP graduate are eligible to claim a wage reimbursement of a minimum of 50% of min. wage (14.60/hour).

The program started in September 2014 and 98% of youth have been successful in finding work, returning to school or job searching. The Cowichan Valley employers have been super supportive of this program and we thank all of them for their mentorship and encouragement to our youth participants.
